Provost’s Faculty Fellows Program

The Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost strives to create a culture of faculty excellence at NC State. The office grows its support though the Provost’s Faculty Fellows Program, which provides faculty with academic leadership experiences in key administrative areas.

Preparing Academic Leaders

The Provost’s Faculty Fellows Program allows talented faculty to explore academic leadership roles at the university’s highest levels. Current NC State faculty interested in learning more about academic affairs administration can hone their skills as faculty leaders through working closely with Provost’s Office staff on projects that are meaningful to them and the university.

The departments of selected Fellows will be provided with 25 percent salary release funds to cover the time commitment required for participation. Fellowships may be for one or two semesters. Fellows will have the opportunity to shadow the provost in meetings or other activities that are relevant to the Fellows’ areas of interest or to their project area, and will have the opportunity to participate in individual leadership coaching conversations with select senior vice provosts or vice provosts if desired.
