Southern Faculty Fellows in Residence

Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) strives to be a leading social justice institution that supports our diverse student body with a reflective, diverse instructional faculty. SCSU has launched a new initiative to recruit a broadly diverse pool of newly credentialed colleagues with relevant terminal degrees (or ABD) for possible two- to three-year faculty fellow opportunities intended to support teaching skills, build scholarship, and continue to prepare new academics to navigate a higher education environment.

The Southern Faculty Fellows in Residence program will appropriately offer individuals the opportunity to work as an Assistant Professor with comparable rank, salary, with a substantially reduced teaching workload, and other unique opportunities that will support a transition into a faculty profile.

Southern Faculty Fellows will reside within a disciplinary home department, pursue their scholarship and creative activities, and build their skills and credentials as a presumptive faculty member teaching 15 credits (9+6) per academic year. The program will also offer opportunities to better understand the workings of a university and academic life, such as learning about our first-year student experience program, shadowing administrators, and optionally serving on university committees.
