Provost's Faculty Fellow Program


The Provost’s Faculty Fellows program offers a unique faculty leadership development experience while the Fellow works on issues that help advance the university’s strategic goals and priorities. Working with the Office of the Provost, each Fellow will have the opportunity to coordinate a university-wide project and to engage with administrative and faculty leaders across the university.

Fellows will work closely with academic administrators who will provide mentoring and share their insights into higher education administration. Fellows’ projects will focus on strategies related to advancing Wright State’s educational mission and address issues related to the following areas:

  • Faculty Success
  • Student Success

Provost’s faculty fellowships will begin in August 2023 and continue to May 2024, with the opportunity to apply for a second year being contingent on progress toward agreed-upon goals/outcomes and availability of funding.

Tasks for the 2023-2024 academic year will include refined project development and implementation of identified outcomes of the project, monthly meetings with the Office of the Provost staff, and collaboration with key faculty and staff across the university who are involved with their project.
