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.

Note that the course release for the 2021-22 academic year must be taken during the Spring 2022 semester. In 2022-23, the fellow may choose, in collaboration with the department head, in which semester to take the course release.
