“We are extremely pleased to have Kevin on the team,” said AUI President, Adam Cohen. “He has an impressive record of leadership, creativity, and organizational development as an academic, administrator, and public servant. I am confident his leadership will help move AUI into new strategic domains that enhance and expand our core mission areas.”

Doran comes to AUI from the University of Colorado Boulder, where he served as an elected Fellow, Professor, and Associate Director for Policy and Analysis at the Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute, a joint institute between the University and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. In that role, he led the Institute’s strategic initiatives related to law, economics, sociology, business and other professional and social science disciplines.  Previously, Doran served as the Senior Advisor to the Under Secretary for Science and Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), where he provided organizational leadership for major planning and strategy initiatives encompassing over $10B in research and development, thousands of program elements, and 13 DOE National Laboratories. Doran also served as Director of the Office of Technology Transfer at DOE, where he led efforts related to technology transfer, policy analysis, interagency coordination, and stakeholder engagement.

“I am honored and excited to join AUI,” Mr. Doran said. “AUI has a storied reputation for excellence in managing complex projects and effective educational and public policy initiatives. I look forward to building on AUI’s expertise to develop new innovations and partnerships in the domains of education, policy, and the social sciences that serve society and advance the global frontiers of knowledge.”

“Kevin is already leading AUI in a major new venture in eLearning,” said Adam Cohen. “The AUI Open Program Education Network—OPEN, for short—will provide high-quality, industry-relevant eLearning to educational institutions worldwide, at little or no cost. This is an exciting initiative that will benefit thousands of students around the world.” For additional information on OPEN, please visit http://open.aui.edu.
