Today, I officially begin an additional appointment as the Provost’s Faculty Fellow for Scholarship and Research in the Center for Faculty Excellence at Simmons University. I am incredibly excited and honored to begin this position to help “craft and implement a vision for supporting faculty research and scholarship at Simmons University as part of a strategic visioning team.”
Here is a bit more from the overview of the position.
“The Fellow will help Simmons enact that vision by aligning work with priorities identified through the strategic plan, listening to and advocating for faculty needs in partnership with the Provost’s office and key stakeholders across campus, seeking external resources to support faculty scholarship as needed, and designing and implementing professional development programs and services for faculty related to research and scholarship, across career stages and position types.”
I look forward to working with the President, the Provost, and the wonderful team in the Center for Faculty Excellence on this exciting opportunity at Simmons.
