Call for Faculty Fellows

The Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE) requests proposals for year-long Faculty Fellowships (Jan.-Dec. 2022) that build upon and enhance CFE’s existing programming, resources, and activities to further support OU faculty as they develop their scholarship through research and creative activities, teaching, community engagement, and service.

All OU faculty are eligible to apply.  Interested faculty should prepare 1) a one page cover letter describing their experience and interests in the proposed work, 2) a list of 3 references who may be contacted, and 3) a two-page proposal describing their plan for creating and implementing faculty development programming and other resources expanding upon current CFE offerings to support faculty excellence in one or more of the following areas:

·       Discovering, developing, implementing, and sharing innovative inclusive teaching practices

·       Building infrastructure for faculty mentoring and/or activities that build community amongst faculty

·       Facilitating writing groups and other resources to support faculty scholarship and publication

·       Supporting faculty efforts in community-engaged research, creative activities, and service-learning courses

Proposals should identify the goals of the proposed work, share an estimated timeline with milestones distributed throughout the fellowship year, discuss how the work will advance faculty development efforts at OU, and describe the expected impact on both the faculty fellow and the broader OU community.  Proposed efforts can include synchronous and/or asynchronous faculty development activities. All proposals should include the creation or curation of resources that faculty can continue to utilize once the fellowship is complete.

The selected faculty fellows will work with current CFE staff and other faculty fellows to develop and implement effective and inclusive faculty development activities and resources from January-December 2022,  meeting weekly throughout the academic year and once over the summer.  Selected Fellows will receive a 1-course release and $5000 stipend/discretionary funds.

Application materials should be emailed to by October 8th to ensure full consideration. If you have questions about the positions, or application process, please email CFE Director Megan Elwood Madden (
