Rusty Crawford, executive administrative dean for the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently named a business officer by the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) for its first Emerging Leaders Program (ELP).
Crawford and 72 others in university administrative positions across the U.S. were chosen from a large group of applicants for the yearlong program. In total, participants represent 58 institutions across 27 different states and were selected based upon the demonstration of their commitment to furthering their careers in higher education finance and strong potential for advancement.
“I’m ecstatic to have been selected to participate in NACUBO’s inaugural ELP,” Crawford said. “I’m looking forward to addressing the current challenges in higher education and identifying opportunities that will shape the future of higher education in our country.”
