The Institute for the Arts and Humanities offers two programs to take faculty to the next level in their careers.

Faculty Fellowships – The fellowships provide on-campus semester leaves for faculty to work on research for publication, exhibition, composition and performance. These highly competitive fellowships enable faculty to develop new courses, programs and initiatives. The program consists of a semester-long weekly seminar in which each class of up to 10 fellows meets to discuss their research, teaching and projects with an interdisciplinary group of colleagues.

Academic Leadership Program Fellowships – The Institute for the Arts and Humanities helps prepare and support current and emerging academic leaders through a yearlong program. Eight fellows are selected annually to engage in a series of activities to help them develop leadership skills, clarify their career commitments, build a leadership network within the campus and extend their contacts to other leaders beyond the University. Because the ALP requires a significant time commitment, a flexible use stipend of $5,000 is provided for each participant. Once appointed, fellows join an expanding community who receive ongoing support from their new network of colleagues. Fellows often meet even after their semester together ends, continuing the conversation.
