Theresa Quell, assistant dean of Fairfield University's School of Nursing, has been named a fellow in the 2002 Leadership for Academic Nursing Program. Quell is among the 60 applicants from universities across the country chosen to participate in the program, which is sponsored by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). She and Courtney Lyder, an associate professor at Yale School of Nursing, were the only two candidates selected from Connecticut.

Quell recently attended an AACN leadership conference March 21 through 23 in Washington, D.C., as part of the yearlong fellowship. The fellowship's function is to enhance the leadership skills of those new to or aspiring to become leaders of baccalaureate or graduate nursing programs. The program is supported by the Helene Fuld Health Trust, the nation's largest private funder devoted exclusively to nursing students and nursing education.

Quell, a 1979 graduate of the university's School of Nursing, lives in Norwalk. She has worked at the School of Nursing for 17 years.
