  • 2. Michael Harris selected as new chancellor of IU Kokomo - Kokomo Perspective: News[1/25/2014 10:11:09 AM] appreciated my time at Kettering. "Tali and I are delighted. We relish the opportunity. It is great to return to IU, my alma mater." Harris was chosen from among four finalists for the position who were identified by a 12-member search committee headed by IU East Chancellor Nasser Paydar. "Dr. Harris has a dynamic personality with great energy and determination," Paydar said. "His experience as the chief academic officer in two institutions has well prepared him for this challenging position." Former IU Kokomo Chancellor Ruth Person left the position in 2008 to become chancellor at the University of Michigan-Flint after serving since 1999. Stuart Green has been serving as interim chancellor since August 2008. He had formerly served as vice chancellor for the IU Kokomo Office of Academic Affairs. "Stuart's leadership has been extremely important to IU Kokomo, especially during this time of transition, and we deeply appreciate his service to the campus," McRobbie said. The new IU Kokomo chancellor will be expected to work closely with a newly formed IU office that will develop and implement a distinct collective mission for IU's regional campuses. The office is headed by John Applegate, vice president for university regional affairs, planning and policy. "Michael has an excellent record of accomplishment, and I'm looking forward to working with him as we chart the future of IU's regional campuses," Applegate said. As the chief ranking academic officer for Kettering University, Harris has been responsible for all aspects of the academic mission of the university, including oversight of academic budgets, the appointment of faculty and all academic and curricular matters. In addition, he has served as the vice president for student affairs. Harris led Kettering, in collaboration with Swedish Bio-gas International and the City of Flint, to develop the state's first Center of Energy Excellence, receiving $1 million from the Department of Energy. He initiated Entrepreneurship Across the Curriculum as a tool to enhance an innovation mindset among graduates. Harris developed strategies to increase enrollment for graduate programs, international undergraduate admissions, study abroad programs and international delegation partnerships, in addition to overseeing three successful accreditation processes. He helped guide Kettering to four national rankings in the 2009 and 2010 editions of America's Best Colleges in the category of undergraduate engineering schools whose highest degree is a bachelor's or master's degree, including a No. 1 ranking in industrial and manufactured engineering and a No. 2 ranking in mechanical engineering. While at Ferris State University, he was successful in strengthening the areas of academics, teaching, research, scholarship, retention, assessment and service. He increased online education, aided progress in assessment efforts and led Ferris through several successful accreditations. He was the principal investigator for several grants, including $1 million from the Dow Foundation to construct new facilities. Harris specializes in public policy and political economy and has published three books, Innovation and Entrepreneurship in State and Local Government (edited with Rhonda Kinney), Term Limits (co-authored with Gideon Doron) and Public Policy and Electoral Reform: The Case of Israel. His fourth book, Leading the Learner- Centered Campus (co-authored with R. Cullen), is due later this spring. He has published in a variety of journals, such as The International Journal of Public Administration, Government and Policy, Nonprofit Quarterly, Utopian Studies, Israel Affairs, Israel Studies, Academic Leader, Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education and Innovative Higher Education, as well as published chapters in several edited volumes. He serves as a political commentator to a variety of broadcast and print media in the United States and Israel (including NPR, Fox, Voice of Israel and the Washington Post). Recognition of his teaching, research and service include the following honors: an Honorary Doctorate in Educational Administration from Ave Maria College, Distinguished Faculty Award for Teaching from Eastern Michigan University, Teaching Excellence Award from EMU's Alumni Association, recognition for Excellence in Teaching from the American Political Science Association and the Michigan Association of Governing Boards Distinguished Faculty Award.
