The Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE) is pleased to announce the appointment of three Graduate Student Fellows (GSFs): Heather Woods (Communication Studies); Franny Brock (Art History); and Ampson Hagan (Anthropology). Co-sponsored by the CFE and the Graduate School, the new Graduate Student Fellowship program provides a unique opportunity for graduate students who are interested in faculty development. Fellows work with CFE staff members from one of the CFE program areas: Teaching and Learning, Research, or Leadership, as well as complete a project in faculty development that the Fellow designs and works on during the course of the semester. CFE staff members will guide the GSFs and provide professional development to help the GSFs meet the career goals they identify as part of their applications.

 

The program offers Fellows opportunities to:

  • Learn about faculty development generally and more specifically in CFE’s unique approach to it
  • Develop a deeper awareness of faculty roles in teaching, research, and leadership
  • Research the faculty development literature to find evidence-based practices to share with faculty
  • Participate in CFE programs as a team member in a supportive, collegial environment
  • Shadow a CFE staff member at meetings and events
  • Contribute to CFE events by taking notes, providing feedback, or suggesting ways of meeting needs the GSF identifies
  • Be a part of a weekly GSF Learning Community to discuss faculty development topics and share experiences about their fellowships
