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
