Provost Distinguished Faculty Fellows

Recognizing the educational benefits of a diverse intellectual community, Georgetown aims to attract assistant professor-level faculty from a wide range of backgrounds and to foster their success as independent scholars and educators on the tenure track. Announced in November 2020, the Provost’s Distinguished Faculty Fellows Program is one pathway by which Georgetown aims to attract and retain tenure-line faculty who support the diversity, equity, and inclusion goals of the university and contribute to their academic units through their scholarship, teaching, and service including mentoring.

Selected candidates must demonstrate a commitment to academic excellence and diversity, equity, and inclusion in their teaching/mentoring, research, and/or service. This commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion can be demonstrated in many ways, including those whose scholarship/teaching focuses on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and/or those who have demonstrated a commitment to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion through their service activities.

Fellows will have completed their terminal degree (e.g., Ph.D., JD, EdD.) at the time of their appointment and are hired on the tenure track at the assistant professor rank. They will have no teaching and service responsibilities in their first year and will devote their full time effort to building their research program.
