HHS Dean's Fellows Program

To broaden faculty participation in the direction and leadership of the College of Health and Human Sciences, Dean Christine Ladisch established the HHS Dean's Fellows program. Serving as a Dean's Fellow provides faculty with a better understanding of university administration that could serve as a foundation for future administrative roles in the college or the University.

Tenured faculty members in the college are eligible for a quarter-time appointment as a Dean's Fellow for both semesters of the academic year. If projects extend beyond the academic year and funding is available, a Fellow may receive partial summer salary to continue those projects during summer. The respective academic unit retains the academic-year salary savings associated with the Dean's Fellow appointment.

Applications are accepted during the spring semester. The application includes: a letter describing the tenured-faculty member's expertise and experience related to specific goals outlined by the Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Administration, a current curriculum vitae and a letter of endorsement from the head of the faculty member's academic unit.

For more information about the HHS Dean's Fellows program, contact Tom Berndt, Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Administration.
