About Faculty Fellows

The Faculty Fellows program is a component of Presentation U! (the QEP endorsed by SACS in April 2013). Faculty members teaching undergraduate courses are encouraged to apply to be a Faculty Fellow.  Once selected, participating Fellows will get help designing instructional lessons and assignments, as well as preparing and using rubrics to evaluate and assess student work as they integrate these components into upper division undergraduate courses in their majors. The obligations are listed below for Cohort 8. Please carefully review the obligations below before applying to be a Faculty Fellow.
