Prof. Ava Majlesi receives Award for Distinguished Contributions to Undergraduate Education.

Information
21 December 2022
Associate Professor of Professional Practice Ava Majlesi is not content to just do her job well. In fact, it may be hard to pin down what exactly that “job” is, because she is so adept at coordinating and leading multiple projects for Rutgers. From development to management to directing to implementation, she has proved her worth. But the contribution that most stands out in its impact on undergraduate education at Rutgers is her role in the creation and growth of the undergraduate minor in Critical Intelligence Studies. The minor was developed via support from a federal grant secured in 2015, naming Rutgers as one of nine national Intelligence Community Centers for Academic Excellence. Professor Majlesi subsequently secured three additional federal grants to expand the Center for Critical Intelligence Studies and the minor into new research and teaching areas. Read more here
