Faculty Members Sought for First Mentoring for Mission Teaching Group

The Office of the Provost is soliciting applications for the first cohort of the Lilly Fellows Program, Mentoring for Mission in Teaching group. The application form is available here.

This group will learn more about the University’s mission, Jesuit education and Ignatian pedagogy with an aim toward developing interdisciplinary and mission-driven courses as the university works towards creating a new interdisciplinary core curriculum. 

Applications are due by Friday, May 25.

The first cohort of interdisciplinary faculty from across the university will run from Thursday, Aug. 9 through Friday, May 31, 2019, with an opening two-day retreat on Thursday and Friday, Aug. 9 and 10 and a half-day workshop the week prior to the end of the spring semester. There will be 90-minute monthly meetings throughout the academic year.

Participation in the Mentoring for Mission in Teaching group will be recognized by the faculty’s department with either a course reduction or by counting as a significant portion of the faculty member’s University service for the duration of the position. In addition, the grant will provide a $500 stipend.

Interested faculty should send their brief application letter explaining why they are interested in participating in this group to facultyaffairs@slu.edu. The department chair should complete the Google Form, Lilly Fellows Program: Mentoring for Mission in Teaching.  All full-time faculty members are eligible for the group, with participants from across SLU.  Selected participants will be notified by Friday, June 15.
