The Faculty Fellow-In-Residence program creates vibrant and engaging learning communities for our students within the residence halls as a way of integrating students' academic experiences with their residential lives. The program offers students the benefits of "small college" life within the larger contexts of both the University and the City of New York, facilitating the development of mentoring relationships between faculty and students.

Faculty Fellows work closely with academic leaders from the Provost’s Office, with one another, and with residence hall staff to create a sense of belonging in the residence halls. They also work closely with students to design and implement co-curricular programs that foster interactions between faculty and students, in addition to carrying out some programmatic initiatives that the University deems essential to our students’ development.
