LIHC Chancellor’s Resident Fellowship call for applications

Lloyd International Honors College (LIHC) announces the 2016-17 Chancellor’s Resident Fellows competition. Central to the mission and work of Lloyd International Honors College are the talented UNCG faculty who teach the College’s courses and interact with its students. For the 2016-2017 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.

The Chancellor’s Resident Fellows Program offers a wonderful opportunity for UNCG faculty to change their teaching routine and teach exclusively for one year the highly motivated and talented students the Lloyd International Honors College. There, 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 the scholar’s 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, 2016, through June, 2017. During the fellowship year the Fellow will teach exclusively in Lloyd International Honors College. Depending on the selected Fellow’s usual departmental teaching load, the teaching load during the Fellowship year will be 4 to 6 courses plus a section of the one-credit colloquium for first-year Honors College students. The Fellow’s teaching schedule will include, in the fall semester, instruction of a section of the Honors College’s colloquium, one 100-level Honors course, and possibly an additional course in the College or a Disciplinary Honors course that carries course credit in the Fellow’s discipline. In the spring semester the Fellow will teach some combination of 200-level

Honors courses and disciplinary honors courses up to the level of the total agreed load. Resident Fellows are expected to participate in the life of the College during their one-year appointment by, among other activities, attending Honors College events, meeting with students, and working closely with the Dean and staff on the future direction of the 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 ongoing obligations such as, but not limited to, serving on Master’s and Doctoral committees, and administering external grants. Fellows receive, in addition to their regular salary, a $5,000 teaching stipend and a $3,000 research stipend, both payable only during the year of the Fellowship. The research stipend may be spent as the Fellow determines it is appropriate to his or her research, all expenditures requiring the approval of the Dean of Lloyd International Honors College and the Head of the Fellow’s department. The Fellow will be provided with office space and necessary computer and administrative support services. At the discretion of the appropriate Dean, departments will be compensated for up to 6 courses, depending on the Fellow’s normal teaching load, at $3,500 per course.
