Invitation for 2021-22 President's Faculty Fellow Program

The President’s Faculty Fellows Program is an opportunity for faculty members to contribute to the leadership of key strategic efforts of Webster University on a part-time basis by partnering with Academic Affairs support units (Faculty Development Center, Academic Resource Center, Academic Advising, Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Study Abroad, and Global Program Development).

This opportunity allows faculty to work on special projects that are of particular interest and importance that take full advantage of the unique interests, skills, and academic backgrounds of the University’s diverse faculty.

Proposals are invited from faculty with specific projects designed to impact the direction of the university for which faculty leadership is essential for successful results.

Project deliverables may take various forms, including student resources, faculty development, scholarship, and/or external engagement. As a part of previous projects, faculty fellows have:

  • Conducted comprehensive literature reviews to identify best practices and resources.
  • Created and delivered hands-on faculty development workshops.
  • Organized faculty learning communities for collaborative exploration of topics across disciplines.
  • Developed handbooks and resource guide to assist faculty members with future projects.
  • Provided faculty consultations and office hours for faculty support and development.

Faculty fellows partner with the appropriate unit best prepared to provide support for the identified deliverables of the project. The Faculty Development Center has annual faculty fellow opportunities and faculty are encouraged to propose projects based in other areas (Academic Resource Center, Academic Advising, Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Study Abroad, or Global Program Development).

It is anticipated that the time commitment for these activities will require an average of four hours of work per week for one academic year. Fellows are awarded a $4,000 stipend for their work.
