Request for Proposals
The Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE) seeks a faculty member for its Faculty in Residence Program to start in Spring or Fall 2020. Applications for the Faculty in Residence Program can be found here. Please submit with subject line FacultyinResidence_LastName via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 8, 2019.
The Faculty in Residence program brings together faculty members who have proposed a program of study, reflection, planning, and action related to some aspect of faculty excellence and development. Successful proposals link faculty interests to Ithaca College initiatives (e.g., the Strategic Plan) and must have a potential impact beyond the faculty member’s own discipline or department.
Each Resident works on a proposed project and meets regularly with the other Residents and CFE Director for discussion, planning, and collaboration. The Residents program is grounded in a distributed leadership model.
Duration of the residency is one academic year, with the possibility of yearly renewal up to a maximum residency of three years. Residents receive one three-credit course release per semester. The Faculty in Residence program is open to all tenured faculty, as well as long-term NTEN faculty members.
Applications are reviewed and selection is made by a committee that includes the Center Director and one member from each school, with a range of faculty ranks, and a mix of past residents and non-residents.
In 750 words or less:
1) Propose a program of study, reflection, planning and action related to some aspect of faculty excellence and development.
2) Describe your interests and experiences related to the proposed program.
3) Describe the potential impact of the proposed program beyond your discipline or department and its connection to Ithaca College initiatives (e.g., the Strategic Plan).
A letter of support from your chair or program director is required and should express how the proposed program will contribute to your professional development and state that the three credits of reassigned time for each semester will fit within your teaching load. The letter should be sent to the Center at email@example.com.
