Searle Faculty Fellowships

The Searle Faculty Fellowship program was founded to recognize and support early-career faculty members who we expect to make significant, long-term contributions to Northwestern University.

Participation in the program is also viewed favorably in tenure and promotion decisions.

Visit the Searle Center site for a list of past and current fellows and information about the application process.

 Expectations of Fellows

  • Participate in an overnight retreat that includes workshops on teaching theories
  • Select a more-senior faculty member from their own department to serve as their mentor
  • Work with Searle Center staff and their mentor to develop a project that explores current literature on teaching and learning effectiveness
  • Attend a recognition ceremony and dinner at the end of the spring quarter, attended by current fellows, mentors and University leaders
