Presidential Visiting Faculty Fellows

To attract leading scholars and practitioners to Rutgers and promote distinction in all fields, the EVPAA invites deans to submit nominations for Presidential Visiting Faculty Fellows, who will join the Rutgers faculty community for up to one year.

Fellows should be persons of distinction and accomplishment, at any rank and in any field, and should advance Rutgers’ goals toward building diversity, equity, and inclusion in our faculty and on our campuses. Where necessary or desirable, fellows may be appointed for a period of less than a year.

Deans wishing to nominate a fellow should submit the materials below to their campus provost, who will review and forward nominations with recommendations to the EVPAA’s office.

For junior (untenured) fellows, the initiative will contribute 100% salary and fringe for one year, plus $5,000 in discretionary research funding.

For senior (tenured) fellows, the initiative will contribute 50% salary and fringe for one year (equivalent to a sabbatical supplementary appointment), plus $5,000 in discretionary research funding.

  • Name and CV of candidate
