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.

Compensation

The Faculty Fellows Program will now use a compensation model that differs from the model of earlier years.  Colleges now decide whether or not to compensate Faculty Fellows participants in their college and at what level.  This change was approved by the Board of Deans and Chancellors in Spring 2013.  Chairs and directors were to be notified by their dean or chancellor.

If you or your department is unsure where the compensation stands, please direct any questions about compensation to the following:

  • UW Bothell:  Annie Littlefield, Academic Human Resources Specialist, at: academichr@uwb.edu or 425-352-5256
  • UW Seattle:  Please contact your college dean or administrator
  • UW Tacoma:  Alison Navarrete, Director of Academic Human Resources, Academic Affairs at: alison5@uw.edu.

Dates and How to Register

The Faculty Fellows Program will be held from September 9 through 12, 2014.  Quarterly follow ups will be held on January 23 and April 10, 2015.

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.
