Faculty Research Fellowship

About the Fellowship:

The Center for Ethics and Public Engagement offers a two-year long Faculty Research Fellowship. The Fellowship provides one course release per year for two years to allow the CEPE Fellow to conduct academic work (research or other discipline-specific work) on a topic that furthers the mission of the CEPE.  All tenure-track faculty are eligible to apply.  The successful applicant is chosen by the CEPE Advisory Board.

Congratulations to Professor Anita Carrasco, the current Faculty Research Fellow, for the academic years of 2021-23. The CEPE will provide support for her research on the role that hospitality and hostility play in shaping the experiences of Latinx and Hispanic students in the Luther community.  Her project will involve research collaboration with students, book group and panel offerings, classroom visits, and finally, a culminating presentation to the public.
