Opening for 2016-2017 Provost's Fellow
March 10, 2016
The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce an opening for a full-time Provost's Fellow to begin Fall Semester 2016.
Since 2009, faculty members from the Kent and regional campuses, and from both the tenure-track and full-time non-tenure track faculty ranks, have served in this important and challenging position. The fellowship was created to provide faculty members, who may have an interest in academic administration, a unique opportunity to serve as a full-time member of the Provost's staff for one academic year.
Past Provost's Fellows have worked on various special projects based on their interests and the needs of Academic Affairs. Most recently, fellows have worked on improving the university's course scheduling system, creating a pilot for online student surveys of instruction, researching best practices for inclusion of part-time faculty in the university's shared governance model, and setting up an innovation makerspace. Fellows return to their faculty positions with a better understanding of the responsibilities and functions of the Provost and the Division of Academic Affairs.
Applications will be accepted until April 27, 2016, and should be submitted to Sue Averill, Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs.
