LIHC fellowship deadline Nov. 10

Lloyd International Honors College (LIHC) announces the 2012-13 Chancellor’s Resident Fellows Competition. For the 2012-13 academic year the College will appoint one Chancellor’s Resident Fellow who will teach full-time in LIHC and participate in the life of the college throughout the year.

Dr. Roy Schwartzman (Communication Studies) holds the fellowship for the current year.

The Chancellor’s Resident Fellows Program offers a great opportunity for UNCG faculty to change their teaching routine and teach the students in the Honors College exclusively for one year.

In Lloyd International Honors College all classes are small seminars that allow the Fellow to teach the subject matter in new ways and on topics that he or she may not get the chance to teach in their own department. In addition to a Fellow’s teaching stipend, the faculty member also receives a research award to be used during the year of the Fellowship.

The Fellowship is open to all full time UNCG faculty. The term of the Resident Fellowship will be one year from July 2012, through June 2013. During the fellowship year the Fellow will teach exclusively in Lloyd International Honors College.

The Chancellor’s Resident Fellow normally should be released from his or her usual departmental responsibilities during the fellowship year. However, the selected Fellow, in consultation with the Fellow’s department head and dean and the Honors College dean, may continue certain on-going obligations.

If you are interested in securing the Fellowship position, submit an application letter, approved by your department head and dean, to Lloyd International Honors College (205 Foust) by Nov. 10, 2011. The selected Fellow will be notified by Dec. 15. Among other items you may wish to enclose, the submitted application should include your curriculum vitae, a list of the courses you have taught over the previous two years, a proposal of the courses you would like to teach during your year in the Honors College with as much specificity as possible, a statement of interest that should address what you might contribute to the mission and work of the College (particularly its commitment to an international perspective), and a brief description of your research agenda.

The selection of the Chancellor’s Resident Fellow will be made by a committee consisting of the dean and an assistant dean of Lloyd International Honors College, as well as three members of the Honors Council. If you have questions about the Fellowship Program or your application, contact Dr. Jerry Pubantz, Dean of LIHC, at 256-2579 or j_pubant@uncg.edu.
