The Center for Faculty Excellence is pleased to announce a call for proposals for its Faculty-in-Residence program in the academic year, 2017-2018.  The program will bring together up to 6 faculty members who have proposed a program of study, reflection, planning, and action related to some aspect of faculty excellence and development.  Successful proposals will link faculty interests to Ithaca College initiatives and must have a potential impact beyond the faculty member’s own discipline or department.   Proposals are especially welcome that address contemplative pedagogy, cultural fluency, mentoring, diversity, inclusion and equity, SOTL, and development of pedagogical strategies related to quantitative literacy and writing.
