Associate Professor Level
The purpose of the LSA Collegiate Fellowship Program is to support exceptional scholars in all three divisions of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) — humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences — who are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the academy.
This program is aimed at supporting, recruiting, and retaining exceptional scholars who are committed to building a diverse intellectual community. LSA seeks early-in-rank associate professors whose teaching and mentoring, and/or research and scholarship, and/or service and leadership will contribute to DEI in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with a demonstrated interest in bringing to their work the critical perspectives that come from nontraditional educational backgrounds and pathways, and/or scholarly understanding of the experiences of groups who are historically underrepresented or marginalized in higher education. Further, the program seeks to recruit scholars from a broad range of institutions that stretches beyond the usual pool.
