Faculty Fellows are Central Michigan University Faculty who provide professional development and conduct educational research in PK-12 classrooms on teaching and learning in science, math, technology, environmental education, and service-learning.
Selection: Faculty Fellows will be selected through an application process. Interested CMU faculty should fill out an online application and then go through a screening process by the Center’s executive board. Applicants are sought from departments offering courses in mathematics, science, environmental science, environmental education, or classroom methods. Fellows will be selected in such a manner as to maximize the number of departments represented during any one year. If more fellow candidates apply during a semester than what is needed, a priority list will be established. Those on the waiting list will be rotated in as fellows as quickly as possible. Professional development and research needs will determine the number of fellows selected.
Faculty Fellows may apply in either the professional development and/or classroom categories. Up to five Faculty Fellows will be selected each semester and then matched with the activities of the Center. Faculty Fellows will have access to all data generated by the research studies of the Center.
Term: Faculty Fellows may apply for a term of one or two semesters. Faculty Fellow positions are renewable. Appointments will be confirmed with the faculty member’s department chair and Dean.
