The University of Arizona

Faculty Fellows

Dedicated to undergraduate student engagement, and informed by research indicating that students tend to be more academically successful when they are immersed in a supportive campus environment with tailored guidance, the University of Arizona established the Faculty Fellows program decades ago.

Faculty Fellows is a group of 55 outstanding UA faculty dedicated to student engagement. Faculty Fellows work to effectively involve students in research, collaborative projects, career-readiness efforts and community outreach. Each Fellow is assigned a campus site for the academic year (whether a residence hall, a cultural center, or a resource center) and spends time at that site each week, building connections and relationships with students outside of the classroom.


Faculty Fellows:

  • Foster students' connection to UA as a whole
  • Help make a large school feel much smaller
  • Create avenues for student-faculty relationship building
