Through a most generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in honor of President Reveley’s long-term excellent leadership on the Mellon board of directors, the university is able to establish the W. Taylor Reveley III Interdisciplinary Fellows. Its goal is to stimulate intellectual creativity across the campus by facilitating faculty commitment to interdisciplinary teaching and research, taking greater advantage of our existing intellectual resources in novel combinations.
Faculty selected will serve as Reveley Faculty Fellows for a three-year period, during which time each Fellow will receive a modest stipend ($4,000/year), collaboratively develop a new course in the first year and teach it in the second and third.
In the second two years, the faculty members’ schools/departments will receive additional funds to cover any lost teaching.
The current Fellows will gather occasionally to share their work with each other and they will also participate annually in a meeting with a larger group of past Reveley Faculty Fellows and the broader campus community.
