Applications for College House Fellow Positions
February 10, 2009, Volume 55, No. 21

The Office of the Provost and College Houses and Academic Services invites applications for service as a College House Fellow. This is a residentially-based position that carries a two-year term. Fellows must be members of the standing or adjunct faculty, lecturers, or post-doctoral fellows whose primary responsibility is teaching, along with members of the University’s senior academic staff who have regular teaching, advising and mentoring relationships with undergraduate students.  

College House Fellows strengthen the connections between the Houses and the intellectual life of the University. Fellows are responsible for working with the Faculty Masters to develop each College House as an educational resource for the University, promoting academic programs in residence, fostering faculty and student interaction, and building strong and supportive House communities. Specific responsibilities will differ from House to House.  Information about the College Houses is available at: www.collegehouses.upenn.edu/.

There are 22 Fellow positions in the College House system. The number of openings will vary, but on the average, between two and five positions are filled each year. Candidates are reviewed by the Undergraduate Deans, the Office of College Houses, and the individual Faculty Masters and House residents and staff. 

For more information about College House Fellow opportunities, please contact David Fox, Director of Academic Initiatives in the Provost’s Office: dfox@upenn.edu or (215) 573-5636.
