During the 2023-24 academic year, six Honors College Faculty Fellows will help WVU students grow their knowledge in areas of climate change and the environment, communication, youth development and collective violence. Half of them are from Eberly College.
“The Faculty Fellows program is a great opportunity for faculty to develop and teach
special topics classes aligned with their areas of expertise,” said Damien
Clement, associate dean of the Honors College. “Fellows push students to seek out
new knowledge and connections, explore diverse ideas and apply what they learn
to real-world problems — all while earning General Education Foundations credits.”
Eberly's fellows and their courses are:
Cari Carpenter, professor of English
An interdisciplinary course rooted in Native American Studies, English and Ecocriticism, “Indigenous Ecostudies” focuses on the different techniques Indigenous people bring to studying the environment. Throughout the class, students will discover how knowledge, innovations and practices of indigenous communities differ from dominant methods of environmental studies.
Jason Manning, associate professor of sociology
“Communication and Health Disparities” applies social science and public health
communication research and theory to understand health disparities. Students
will learn how public health terms are defined, how social science can be used
to better address health disparities and potential public health communication
interventions that can address health disparities.
