Provost's Teaching Fellows

The Provost’s Teaching Fellows program is a pioneering initiative to strengthen faculty participation and governance in the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), enhance faculty collaboration across disciplinary and institutional boundaries, and support specific faculty-led projects to improve teaching and learning.

Twenty leading faculty innovators have been appointed by Provost Gregory L. Fenves as Provost’s Teaching Fellows in 2013.

Nine Senior Fellows will take on a variety of leadership roles for two years including:

  • leading faculty learning communities,
  • reviewing grants to support curricular and pedagogical innovation, and
  • participating in operational governance for CTL.

Eleven Fellows will receive $25,000 grants to pursue specific projects to improve teaching and learning in their departments, schools or colleges, or at the university. After two years, fellows may continue to participate in the program as Senior Fellows.

Provost’s Teaching Fellows will work closely with the Provost, deans, chairs, other faculty leaders and CTL staff to strengthen the University’s support structures for excellent teaching.  The program will expand and develop through annual nominations.
