Practitioner scholars are corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, consultants, subject matter experts, safety professionals, thought leaders, and change agents who interact with the students in our program and complement the ASEM curriculum. Our practitioner scholar list has grown over the years and now includes many alumni. We welcome a new cohort of these diverse educators each academic year.
