Forum Fellows

The IUPUI Office of Academic Affairs and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) invite interested IUPUI faculty to join the inaugural cohort of Forum Fellows. The purpose of the Forum Fellow position is to generate a greater sense of community among faculty on campus, to support professional development in areas that intersect with teaching (e.g., mentoring, multicultural competency) and to encourage innovation in teaching and SOTL scholarship. Supporting projects that involve interdisciplinary sharing and exchange among faculty from different schools is particularly valued. These positions have been created in direct response to recommendations articulated in the report submitted by the Faculty Development and Center for Teaching and Learning Task Force.

The Forum Fellow position is a part-time appointment for 1-2 years and should be ideal for an individual devoted to student learning and interested in gaining professional development experiences that could help provide a foundation for future leadership positions. The Office of Academic Affairs and Center for Teaching and Learning will compensate the Forum Fellow’s school to cover release time for the individual selected. Details of the appointment will be arranged with the individual’s school and may involve course buyouts during each academic year of the appointment.
