The Presidential Fellows Program is program is designed to stimulate and facilitate projects by faculty members from across the System to help realize institutional goals. The faculty selected by the president as Fellows will work in close collaboration with the Office of the President and other System and university offices to develop projects that enhance the academic, research, economic development and civic engagement missions of the System. As a part of the program, Fellows will become familiar with System-wide academic initiatives, strategic planning, budget issues and broader challenges in higher education. In addition, Fellows will make direct contributions to the U of I System by taking on special projects and providing guidance on various topics that align with their own academic and research interests. As part of this experience, Fellows may be asked to participate in a range of service and learning opportunities, including serving as members of the President’s Management Council.
