The Eberly College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office has announced the first cohort of Woodburn Fellowship recipients, whose two-year terms start in August 2020. 

The newly established fellowship program is one of the College’s highest honors for faculty. Associate and full professors classified as either tenured, teaching, service or research are eligible. The program will annually recognize exemplary professors who embody the highest potential for accomplishments in teaching, research and/or service in fields spanning the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. 

Woodburn Fellows are expected to be actively and constructively involved in departmental governance, contribute to a collegial work environment and provide mentorship to junior members of their department’s faculty. They will also provide leadership across the college, discipline and community levels. The fellowship includes an award to support professional development, such as travel and research expenses.
