Course Development Fellowship: Ethics
There are two categories of Summer Ethics Course Development Fellowship for which all full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty are eligible to apply. The full fellowship ($3,500) is intended to provide support to faculty to design and implement new courses on the ethics of their discipline. Fellowship recipients may teach only one course during the Summer. The Partial Fellowship ($1,000) provides a stipend to revise currently-existing courses by integrating an ethics component into them. The purpose of the Fellowship is to encourage faculty to restructure their courses to include the ethical issues which arise in their discipline.
Recipients of either fellowship are expected to complete their project during the period beginning after commencement in May and ending with the start of Fall Semester.
Recipients are required to submit a written report on the results of the award including a completed syllabus, list of materials and bibliography. There should also be a plan to evaluate the course. The report should be submitted to the Associate Academic Vice President for Faculty Development and Summer Programs by October 1 following the award period. Courses which are developed are expected to be offered during the following academic year.
