A little more about the Faculty Fellows Program
Initiated in 1984, the Faculty Fellows Program take academics beyond the grade books and help Eventss experience education outside of the classroom. This is where the richness of higher education comes together, in a very casual and comfortable environment that removes the boundaries of classrooms and desks, office hours and lecture halls. Students connect with professors, instructors, librarians and researchers on a personal level that might be overlooked in a large university setting. Think "small liberal arts college feel" in a large, public, research one university. It's the best of both worlds.
Faculty Fellow are dedicated to sharing meaningful interactions with students in a non-classroom setting. In addition to friendly mentorship, fellows help provide students with a smooth transition to the UA, an ever-deepening love of learning and, ultimately, a path toward graduation. Many of our Fellows are recognized for their contributions to teaching and student life at the UA at both local and national levels. Thirty Fellows in almost 30 venues around campus bring their own individual flair to their interactions with students, interactions that aren't limited by academic discipline.
