The Faculty Fellows Program is a faculty designation that provides recognition of
and a pathway for faculty leadership at the College through various peer-to-peer professional
development programs. Currently, Faculty Fellows can earn credentials through both
the Faculty Innovation Center and the WAC/WID Program. Once credentialed, they are eligible to work as peer mentors and are further eligible
to earn a stipend or course release as compensation for their work in the Faculty
Fellows Program. To get more information on becoming a Faculty Fellow through the
Innovation Center, please contact Dr. Andrea Gibson, Chair of the Division of Online Studies. Faculty earning program credentials will
also earn professional development credit for the purposes of continuing education,
tenure, and promotion.
The WAC/WID Program Faculty Fellows
The WAC/WID Program aims to prepare and support faculty to teach writing in their
disciplines, within a framework of best practices in writing studies theory and pedagogy,
in order to examine the writing expectations in their courses and foster student success.
Faculty Fellows are responsible for facilitating the WAC/WID program, which includes
mentoring other faculty members, performing classroom observations for program participants,
and facilitating the online program.
Working as a Faculty Fellow in the WAC/WID program gives you the opportunity to collaborate
with your peers and lead the campus community in developing multiple literacies in
our student population. Compensation for your time is given as a course release or
a stipend. Faculty earning program credentials also earn professional development
credit for the purposes of continuing education, tenure, and promotion.
