Dr. Julie Rojewski
BEST Grant Project Coordinator, Director of PhD Career Development
Julie W. Rojewski, Ph.D. is currently Program Manager for the MSU BEST (Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training) program. Funded by the NIH, this program serves biomedical science and engineering graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to teach them the skills and competencies they need to pursue a variety of careers when they leave MSU. This work draws upon her vast experience in professional development for academics, as she has worked in faculty development, teaching and learning, program assessment and evaluation, and other areas of program management. Prior to her work with MSU BEST, she was the Director of MSU’s ADVANCE project (NSF) (2013-2015), Interim Director of Teaching Programs at the MSU Graduate School, and Interim Associate Director for Teaching and Learning in the MSU Office of Faculty and Organizational Development.
Her academic training spans the humanities and social science, and coupled with her work serving scientists and engineers, she merges these experiences to present and publish her scholarship to diverse audiences that serve scholars and practitioners alike, in organizations such as the ASEE, National Alliance for Broader Impacts, Council of Graduate Schools, Professional and Organizational Development (POD) and others. She is a sought-after teacher, facilitator, and consultant to institutions who want to develop their own programs or deliver engaging workshops and seminars to their students, faculty, and staff. Dr. Rojewski holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in Educational Administration from MSU, an M.A. in English from The Ohio State University; and a B.A. in English and French from Alma College in Alma, Michigan.
