LSA Collegiate Fellows Program – University of Michigan.
The College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan launched the LSA Collegiate Fellows program in 2016 as a major college initiative aimed at promoting an inclusive scholarly environment, recruiting and retaining exceptional early career scholars, and supporting outstanding scholars who are committed to building a diverse intellectual community.
LSA offers its students an outstanding undergraduate education in the liberal arts at a premier research institution and is dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive scholarly environment. The purpose of the LSA Collegiate Fellows program is to support exceptional scholars in all liberal arts fields who are committed to diversity in the academy and to prepare those scholars for possible tenure-track appointments in LSA at the University of Michigan.
The College seeks early career scholars whose research, and/or teaching, and/or service will contribute to diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with a demonstrated interest in bringing to their teaching/mentoring or research the critical perspectives that come from non-traditional educational backgrounds and pathways, and/or scholarly understanding of the experiences of groups who are historically underrepresented or marginalized in higher education.
