Provost's Fellows Program - Closed

The Provost's Fellows (PROF) program was first offered for the 2021-22 academic year.

The Office of the Provost is committed to providing faculty opportunities that complement their research, scholarship, and creative activities. The Provost recognizes that supporting faculty members’ career development and skill-building opportunities, as well as promoting and nurturing a climate of inclusive excellence help forge pathways to enhanced academic governance and leadership at Jacksonville University. 

The Provost Fellows (PROF) program furthers these priorities by providing selected Jacksonville University faculty with an opportunity to develop executive leadership skills. Challenged to work on campus strategic initiatives and academic processes, the work of the Provost Fellow must also align with individual professional development goals and interests. Please see the RFP below for additional details.
