SVSU KCP Future Faculty Fellows Committee

Chaired by the Coordinator, Dr. Mamie Thorns, the SVSU KCP FFF Committee is made up of faculty members representing all five Colleges and one staff member from the Academic Advising Office. Some of these individuals were recipients of the KCP FFF award earlier in their academic careers.

The SVSU KCP FFF Committee meets periodically during Fall and Winter semesters to review applications for individuals planning to attend a masters level graduate program at SVSU. Applicants should only apply to the KCP FFF Committee at the institution that they plan to attend for graduate study. For example, if an applicant plans to go to graduate school at Michigan State University, then he/she should apply to the MSU KCP FFF Committee. On request, we will be pleased to provide contact information on the KCP FFF program coordinator working at other public Michigan universities.

Dr. Vanessa Brooks-Herd, Assistant Professor of Social Work
Dr. David Callejo Perez, Endowed Chair in Education
Dr. Clifford Dorne, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management
Mr. John A. Flores, Assistant Director of Academic Advisement
Dr. Ava Lewis, Professor of Nursing
Dr. Smriti Pant, former KCP FFF

Please remember to update contact information as needed.
