Faculty Fellows Program

The goal of the Faculty Fellows Program is to advance Center for Teaching, Research, and Learning’s mission of promoting and supporting excellence in teaching and scholarship. The Program leverages faculty expertise to lead in the sharing of knowledge, experience, and creativity with their colleagues. Faculty Fellows work with CTRL to develop and implement programming to enhance faculty’s effectiveness as teachers and researchers.
The term of a Faculty Fellow is one academic year. CTRL is currently accepting applications for IP and SoTL fellows. If you have any questions about the program or are interested in serving as CTRL Faculty Fellow, please contact Kiho Kim.
