“The Institute brings scholars here together in Hyde Hall, which allows their ideas to deepen and to turn into books, that then are read and transform the teaching of their fields.”

At every stage of their career, the Institute offers support. Our organization was founded upon the Faculty Fellowship Program (FFP), which grants faculty a semester release from teaching and service to focus on their scholarship. Faculty Fellows gather and discuss their research weekly in Hyde Hall. Since 1988, the Insitute has provided at least 16 fellowships a year. In our 30-year history, the IAH has grown to also aid faculty through grants, leadership development, and programs across ranks.
