UT Presidential Faculty Fellowship (UTPFF)

President Gaber and Provost Hsu invite faculty to apply for the UT Presidential Faculty Fellowship. This initiative seeks to advance faculty leadership development, present opportunities within higher education administration, and improve faculty career satisfaction.

Fellowship recipients will shadow the President or Provost in a mentorship program. They will work on a project that furthers the institution and receive insight into the skills needed in higher education administration.

Candidates will be selected based on contributions to the institution and emerging academic administrator qualities. Preference will be given to those who have completed the Provost’s Leadership Institute. Applications are due by May 12, 2017.

Criteria for eligibility:

  • Tenured full Professor or tenured Associate Professor within 2 years of applying for full Professor
