Three IUPUI faculty have been selected among the first cohort of Faculty Fellows for the Association of American Colleges and Universities’ project to create a multi-state sustainable network of resource and innovation hubs and a national learning community of faculty fellows working to advance student success through large-scale student learning initiatives. 

The selection of fellows was competitive across the first five states targeted for the project, said Kathy Johnson, who will serve a one-year term as interim IUPUI executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer effective Aug. 16.

The three are among six Faculty Fellows selected for the project from Indiana. The IUPUI faculty include:

  • Keith Anliker, senior lecturer and director, Laboratory and Curriculum Support, Chemistry.
  • Elaine Cooney, chair of the Department of Engineering Technology, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology.
  • Elizabeth Goering, associate professor of Communication Studies; director of Online Certificate in Human Communication in a Mediated World. 

“I’m very proud that IUPUI has more fellows participating than any other institution,” Johnson said. “It certainly bodes well for our campus and for the students whose lives are touched by the curricula that they help to shape.”

The Faculty Fellows will share best practices for general education and lead faculty development activities to advance student achievement of key proficiencies that are important for post-graduation success and well being.
