Meet the 2020-2021 Recipients of the Chancellor's Scholar-in-Residence Fellowship

The P3 Collaboratory is excited to announce the recipients of the 2020-2021 Chancellor's Scholar-in-Residence Fellowship, Patricia Ahkimie and Ramona Ross.

The fellowship is designed to support RU-N faculty in learning about, and implementing, evidence-based pedagogies in their courses, while providing opportunities for the development and furtherance of their individual scholarly agendas. This year's recipients will embark upon projects focused on professional development with a peer-support model and evidence-based pedagogical approaches that promote effective (online) instruction that lead to stronger student outcomes.

The fellowship is open to all full-time faculty at RU-N: tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure track. Fellows are provided dedicated office space within the P3 Collaboratory in Dana Library.
