Who We Are
The Fellows are hard-working, forward-thinking, community-minded faculty committed to improving teaching practice and campus culture at UT Austin. The current cohort of 43 Fellows represents faculty of all rank, 13 Colleges and Schools, and a multiplicity of disciplines and unique perspectives. At present, 25 Teaching Fellows pursue individual initiatives, 18 Senior Fellows provide mentorship and guidance, and 11 Alumni Fellows remain active in the program. Collectively, Fellows spearhead events that benefit the entire campus, including the New Faculty Symposium, monthly Think Tanks where faculty discuss thorny issues in a safe and collaborative environment, and Eyes on Teaching.
