For Faculty

Faculty Programs

Our Goals

Engaging our academic colleagues in ongoing collaborations is a divisional core value. To that end, the division offers two signature programs - Faculty Fellows and Student/Faculty Interaction (SFI) Grants – that strive to:

  • Connect UA students to the faculty and to the UA community
  • Create an individual experience for students
  • Help students apply their classroom knowledge to real world situations

How We Do It

Faculty Fellows

Faculty Fellows is a group of 45 outstanding UA faculty dedicated to undergraduate student engagement. Each appointed Faculty Fellow is assigned a site varying from residence halls to cultural centers or resource centers. Faculty Fellows build relationships with students to help them:

  • Think critically
  • See the world in new ways
  • Develop their own opinions

Student/Faculty Interaction (SFI) Grants

Student/Faculty Interaction (SFI) Grants award grants to instructors to fund activities that enhance their course curriculum and deepen learning and the student/faculty relationship. SFI Grant funded programs:

  • Bring the classroom to life
  • Make a large class feel smaller
  • Aid career readiness
