The Tisch Faculty Fellows program convenes a diverse group of faculty members from across Tufts University for interdisciplinary discussions about teaching and research and builds the capacity of Tufts faculty to integrate civic engagement into their work. Faculty Fellows develop a course, research project, or other initiative designed to strengthen the connections between their individual disciplines and civic life. They receive a stipend that can be used for salary or research/teaching expenses, and they meet four times per semester to share perspectives and discuss common themes, challenges, and resources. To date, more than 100 colleagues, representing every Tufts school, have participated in the program, which is open to any member of the Tufts University faculty.
The 2018-2019 Faculty Fellows application period is closed. We will announce the new class of Fellows on this page soon. Any questions can be directed at Diane Ryan, Tisch College’s Associate Dean for Programs and Admnistration, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
