Honors Faculty Fellowship


The Honors Faculty Fellowship Program is an exciting addition to the University Honors Program. Starting in fall 2020, faculty selected to teach Honors Seminars will be Honors Faculty Fellows. We hope you'll consider participating, whether you're new to the University Honors Program or have contributed to it in the past.

As an Honors Faculty Fellow, you'll have the opportunity to teach students from a variety of disciplines in a small seminar setting. You can try out new material, spruce up an existing course or repeat a popular seminar. Course development funds are available, though limited. Honors Faculty Fellows will be featured on the University Honors Program website and join a community of like-minded educators eager to incubate engaging and innovative curricular ideas

Faculty from all disciplines are invited to apply, in consultation with their chair or unit director. While you're free to suggest any topic for your seminar, you may choose to align with our 2020-21 theme, "exploration." 

The 2021-22 call for proposals will be available in fall 2020. Read the previous call for proposals.
