Nissa Dahlin-Brown Graduates from the 2010 HERS Denver Institute

Denver, CO (Nov. 23, 2010) – Nissa Dahlin-Brown, Associate Director, Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy at the University of Tennessee graduated from the HERS Denver Institute, held Aug. 1-7, Sept. 9-11 and Oct. 21-23 at the University of Denver, Denver, Colorado.

Since 2007, the HERS Institute for Women in Higher Education at the University of Denver has annually offered women faculty and administrators the opportunity to participate in an intensive program that prepares them to be leaders in higher education.

The 55 participants selected for this year’s Institute represented 46 institutions across the U.S. Responding to the current environment for higher education globally, the Institute had a special focus this year on “Women’s Leadership in Times of Crisis: Leveraging Our Responses for Institutional Renewal.” Topics studied included “Understanding Our New Economic Environment,” “Planning Our Strategies beyond Recovery,” “Empowering and Sustaining Leadership,” and more.

Dahlin-Brown has been at the University of Tennessee since August 1984 serving as Associate Director of the Baker Center since 2003.  She was previously Assistant Director with UT Professional & Personal Development and UT Conferences.

Her participation in the HERS Denver Institute was sponsored by the Commission for Women and the Chancellor’s Office.  She was selected to represent UTK through a process facilitated by the Commission for Women.  Over the past five years five women, faculty, and administrators from UTK have been sponsored to participate in HERS Institutes at Bryn Mawr College, Wellesley College or the University of Denver.
