Spring semester 2017 is just beginning and before you know it summer will be upon us. The AEF is currently receiving applications for this summer’s Visiting Professor Program (VPP) – a seven-day summer fellowship for professors teaching in the liberal arts, advertising, marketing and communications. The VPP provides a forum for the exchange of ideas between academia and the industry.
In 2016, 10 professors were hosted by companies in Chicago and New York City. Since 1987, 501 professors from schools such as: Clark Atlanta, FAMU, Hampton, Howard, North Carolina A&T, and Savannah State have participated in the VPP, experiencing the day-to-day operations of an advertising agency, a marketing or media company.
Program dates for the 2017 VPP are June 8-16. If interested, fill out and submit an application online by visiting www.aef.com and clicking on ‘Partnership Programs’. Letter of recommendation (on school letterhead) must be emailed to Sharon Hudson at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 31st. When making your two-minute video, please hold your cell phone horizontally. Note the VPP is for fulltime professors only who teach in the United States.
