The new fellows program is intended to develop faculty and staff leaders across the university. The program is conducted annually during the spring term under the sponsorship of and administered by the Center for Teaching and Learning. Applications are accepted each fall for spring cohorts.

Each cohort is composed of a select group of faculty and staff interested in developing their leadership potential, learning more about university functions and policies, and collaborating as a team to address a current university issue.
