I'm excited to welcome Drs. Damien Wilson and Michael Cohen who are joining us as Faculty Fellows from Fall 2019-Spring 2022. Damien joins us from the Wine Business Program in the School of Business & Economics and Mike joins us from Biology in the School of Science & Technology. The Faculty Fellow position has two major and complementary components: 1) faculty development; 2) institutionalization of learning pedagogies for the common good. This means that Damien and Mike will be supporting the faculty in their Schools with their community engaged work. Additionally, Damien and Mike are in the preliminary stages of forming a plan for their institutionalization projects.
