The university recently announced a slate of Provost Fellows who will represent and embed faculty leadership and scholarly expertise throughout the planning and implementation of Reigniting Our Strategic Directions. Nearly 60 colleagues applied to serve as fellows and to support the objectives of goals of the strategic directions, with 33 faculty members selected to serve a one-year term that begins this summer.
As faculty leaders and teacher-scholars, the Provost Fellows will bring their experience and expertise to the strategic effort to strengthen the education SU offers in the Jesuit, liberal arts tradition. These colleagues will share their work as Provost Fellows with the various academic departments and programs and, more broadly, across the university. They will also share their work with peers, providing thoughtful scholarship and models for transforming the academic enterprise to serve a changing student population and to meet the emergent and longstanding challenges of our time.
“I was delighted to see such strong interest in strengthening and transforming our university and was genuinely impressed by the quality and thoughtfulness of the Provost Fellow applications,” says Provost Shane P. Martin. “I am hopeful that all faculty will continue to bring their expertise and energy to a deep and broad engagement with the Reignited Strategic Directions throughout the various phases of our collective work.”
