Faculty Fellows


The Honors College Faculty Fellows program aims to support both innovative teaching and scholarly activity across all disciplines at UCM. Specifically, the program looks to develop exceptional teacher-scholars by providing the support, resources, and intellectual environment needed in order for them to flourish. 


In lieu of one of their department courses, fellows teach either: 

  • one 3-credit Honors-only General Education course or 

  • one 3-credit HONR 3000 course related to their area of expertise

These courses can be offered in either the Fall or Spring semesters.  These classes represent the highest level of engaged learning. Our fellows are also active in their scholarship or creative work, bringing this advanced level of expertise to their classes. 


Fellows are awarded professional development funds to support their research or creative work:

  • up to $500 for General Education courses 

  • up to $1000 for HONR 3000 

While expenses must follow university guidelines, these funds can be spent in a multitude of ways including the acquisition of supplies, travel-related expenses, and/or fieldwork costs. These funds must be spent by the end of the academic year when they are fellows. 


Faculty Fellows are also asked to:

  • present their work in an Honors College event open to the university community

  • holding at least one office hour per week at Achauer House in the semester they are a fellow =

  • attend the Honors College events in the semester they are a fellow

Prospective fellows must submit an application by Feb 2, 2024 for the upcoming academic year. Given that the fellowship requires a one-course buy out, applications must have the approval of the faculty's department chair and dean. Fellows are then selected by the Honors College Advisory Board. Fellows will also be encouraged to attend the Honors College events throughout the year & at least one hour of student hours/week in Achauer House. Direct all inquiries to the Tom Goldstein (
