Faculty Fellows

Faculty Fellows are faculty members who live in our Residential Colleges or Communities for 3 years, often with their families.

Faculty Fellows provide an intellectual presence in their residential colleges/communities and bridge connections from the academic core and student affairs. Faculty Fellows promote a spirit of intellectual inquiry in residence, by modeling and discussing all aspects of academic life and encouraging critical thinking, questioning and dialogue about important issues. Faculty Fellows partner with Residential College/Community Directors and Resident Advisors to engage students in learning and experiences in their residential community. 

Faculty Fellows host 2 or more programs a month and are involved in Residential College/Community traditions. They outreach to residents via email and/or advertise their events in the community newsletter.
