Undergraduate Studies Faculty Fellows

About the Faculty Fellows

The Faculty Fellows Program is on an hiatus for the 2019 - 2020 academic year.

Each year the Office of Undergraduate Studies sponsors an opportunity for a small cohort of faculty to participate in a faculty learning community addressing an important issue relevant to undergraduate education. The Office of Undergraduate Studies leads the weekly learning community meetings. Undergraduate Studies Faculty Fellows must be on campus for the fall semester and available for open house events in the spring semester. Faculty Fellows must be committed to playing an active role in the UGST Faculty Fellows Learning community
