Engaged Faculty + Engaged Students = Transformative Education

Engaged Faculty + Engaged Students = Transformative Education

What is the Faculty Fellows Program?

The Student Affairs Faculty Fellows Program is designed to enhance connections between curricular and co-curricular learning experiences. The Fellows Program highlights Student Affairs’ commitment to enhancing student learning through the creation of seamless academic partnerships and integrated, transformational, high impact learning experiences. The Fellows Program is a year-long faculty development program that provides an opportunity for selected faculty members to integrate co-curricular learning into their teaching (any setting focused on student learning) or service work. The fellows will serve as campus leaders in experiential learning and campus engagement. The program provides an opportunity for faculty to enhance existing and identifying new Student Affairs/Academic Affairs partnerships that enrich student learning.

All UGA faculty, tenure track and non-tenure track, are invited to apply. The first cohort will consist of two faculty fellows who will each receive a $2000 stipend. We strongly encourage applications that focus on well-being or community-building, but all applications will be considered.
