CGC Senior Fellows

Through research, writing and discussion, CGC Senior Fellows will champion matters of interest to this industry. These Fellows will add a rich practitioner component to better understand and support the GovCon industry.

Research briefs and commentaries will share research findings on- and off-campus. This will strengthen the position and capability of the Center for Government Contracting.

In addition, appointments to the School of Business will increase opportunities for collaboration with faculty. Faculty will gain access insights to this diverse GovCon marketplace while sharing multi-disciplinary access across Accounting, Finance, Information Systems and Operations Management, Management, and Marketing.
