About Faculty Fellows

The Faculty Fellows Program orients new faculty to the University campus community. The Program is facilitated by a number of campus educators, including those that have received campus-wide teaching awards. Presenters and facilitators actively engage our new faculty members on a number of topics including, but not limited to, panel discussions with UW students, effective teaching methods and techniques for balancing the demands of successful teaching and research.


Tenure track full, associate, and assistant professors as well as full and senior lecturers with three or five year appointments are eligible to participate. Research faculty and visiting faculty will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

New faculty whose appointments begin Winter after the September program, will be invited to participate in the Faculty Fellows Program the following September.  For example, if an appointment starts on January 1, 2014, an invitation will be sent for September 2014.

In order to be considered, department chairs are required to send an email to facfells@uw.edu with the name, appointment title, and email address of their new faculty member(s). Upon verification of eligibility, an invitation will be sent via email.


New faculty who are on 9-month appointments and not already on payroll will receive the equivalent of one week’s pay and are expected to participate fully in the one-week Fellows program. Participants will be paid at 50% from September 1-15, 2013 and will receive benefits. Faculty already on payroll at 100% for the September 1 -15, 2013 payroll period – while eligible to participate – will not receive additional compensation.

H-1B Visas

It is essential that we receive early notice of new faculty who will be obtaining H-1B visas. The start date on the visa application should be September 1, 2013 in order to participate and receive compensation (pending eligibility). Please contact International Scholars Operations at 206.685.8847 for assistance with this process.

Dates and How to Register

The Faculty Fellows Program will be held Monday, Sept. 9 to Thursday, Sept. 12, 2013.

Once an email invitation has been received, participants must confirm their intention by registering through an online WebQ survey. (The link is provided with the email invitation, and registrants will need their UW NetID to access the online form.) Submission of the online registration form confirms full participation.

Instructions on how to set up your UW NetID can be found at the top of the page.  Your home department should also be able to assist you in this process.
