CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
SENIOR FELLOWS OF THE HONORS COLLEGE
Senior Fellows will be NSU faculty members, NSU administrators or members of the larger Hampton Roads community whose primary function will be to help raise funds for and awareness of the Honors College and to support its goals actively and enthusiastically. The goals of the Honors College, in full support of the university’s overall mission, are
- to raise the level of academic standards and expectations at the university;
- to provide an enriched and challenging program of study for students who manifest exceptional academic potential and are willing to commit to a rigorous academic curriculum;
- to improve the university’s ability to attract, matriculate and graduate such scholars; and
- to enrich the entire university community by sponsoring and co-sponsoring worthwhile academic and co-curricular events.
Senior Fellows will be invited to attend Honors College events both on and off campus plus weekly Honors Cafés at the Honors College Residential Hall in order to interact with students under the leadership of the Dean of the Honors College. (Attendance at least one Honors Café per month is suggested; attendance at Honors-sponsored events is encouraged as it is practicable for the individual Fellow.) Fellows may be asked to speak at such gatherings, and/or to offer students shadowing or internship opportunities. Senior Fellows (approximately 30 in number) will be appointed by the President for a renewable term of two years. NSU faculty members will receive credit on their faculty evaluations commensurate with their service; preference will be given to faculty who are currently teaching Honors courses, have taught such courses, or are willing to teach them in the future.
Faculty may self-nominate by sending a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Dr. Page Laws, Dean of the Honors College, who will review the documents with the Provost. The Provost will submit recommendations to the President for final consideration. The deadline for self-nominating or nominating others for this voluntary position will be July 31 of each academic year. Call ext. 8208 for more information.
