Faculty Diversity Fellowship

Posted April 11, 2017


Ursuline College is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty members.  With this in mind, Ursuline College invites applications for teaching fellows from those who will contribute to the cultural climate of Ursuline College by increasing its racial and ethnic diversity and enhancing the educational benefits of diversity.  Ursuline College will offer either a semester or year-long fellowship to a doctoral candidate (or post-doc) who would teach one course per semester in her or his discipline at the undergraduate level for the semester to begin August 15, 2017.

This Fellowship is supported by a grant from the Key Bank Foundation.

The fellowship recipient will be paired with an expert faculty member for coaching and mentorship.  Additionally, the Faculty Diversity Fellow will be granted time, office space and resources to conduct research and write for publication.  Funds will be allotted for professional development and travel to conferences.

About Ursuline College:

Ursuline College helps students to achieve their educational and career goals by emphasizing the whole person and providing personalized attention within a liberal arts higher educational environment.  The primary focus of Ursuline College is on the academic preparation of students through an emphasis on excellence in teaching and on scholarship that supports teaching.  The College seeks faculty members who are professionally competent, who are committed to developing a learning community, and who can contribute to its distinctively Ursuline character.  As a corollary of our emphasis on shared responsibility, the College seeks to foster a climate of collegiality in which all members have opportunity to influence and to participate in decision-making.

We serve students who reflect a wide range of ages, races, ethnic origins, religions and economic, social and academic backgrounds. We make a special effort to assess and meet the needs of our diverse student body by providing flexible scheduling and a variety of approaches to learning.  Ursuline College also serves the local community by offering programs and facilities for social, cultural, and spiritual enrichment.


The primary responsibility of the Ursuline College Faculty Diversity Fellow will be to teach one course each semester in her or his discipline at the undergraduate or graduate level and other duties as assigned.  Ursuline College also requires the fellowship recipient to present a campus colloquium on a topic of his or her choice.

Qualifications and Compensation:

Applications are invited in all disciplines.  The successful candidate must have completed a Ph.D., be engaged in post-doctoral study or completing doctoral coursework (for example, ABD).   Fellowship recipients must be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents committed to and willing to contribute to enhancing the diversity of Ursuline College.
