Under the aegis of the P3 Collaboratory at Rutgers-Newark, the fellowship is designed to support RU-N faculty in learning and implementing evidence-based pedagogies in their courses, while providing opportunities for the development and furtherance of their individual scholarly agendas. In addition, Fellows are expected to support the ongoing research and programmatic initiatives of the P3 Collaboratory. In support of their commitment to the P3, Fellows receive $15,000 for the academic year (or $7,500 for a single semester).

In previous years, Scholars-in-Residence have embarked upon program design and STEM pathways for underrepresented populations; course redesign and pedagogical protocol development; and a campus-wide yearlong teaching development program.

Eligibility & Expectations: The Chancellor’s Scholar-in-Residence Fellowship is open to all full-time faculty at RU-N: tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure track. Fellows are expected to contribute approximately 20% of their professional time to the fellowship and are provided dedicated office space within the P3 Collaboratory in Dana Library.

Luke Greeley, PhD

Supply Chain Management (RBS)

Project Description

My project is two-fold. First, to enhance the curriculum of the Business Forum, a professional development and skill-building course, and possibly develop a model of professional development courses for other Rutgers schools and units to adopt. Second, to develop and execute a research study which explores psychological interventions in the classroom to help students improve performance by ‘priming’ the value of diverse personality attributes and intelligences through values-affirmation exercises. 

Dr. Greeley is a Scholar-in-Residence for AY 2023-2023.


Thanks for joining the P3 Learning Community!

Diane Jammula, PhD

Physics (SASN)

Project Description

I am applying for grants to create pathways for underrepresented minority students in physics. This funding will support the new Physics Education Research Group at Rutgers, Newark, which seeks to provide cutting edge physics education in urban public institutions.

Dr. Jammula is a Spring 2023 Scholar-in-Residence.

Earth & Environmental Sciences

As Scholar-in-Residence, I explored and developed aspects of my teaching and research that I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to otherwise. Leveraging the multitude of resources available at the P3 Collaboratory, I was able to focus on professional development and other activities in support of my career goals, student success, and to address challenges facing my discipline. The experience truly broadened my vision for what I can accomplish in my role as faculty.

The Chancellor's Scholar-in-Residence program enabled me to research best practices for faculty development and share that information with members of the campus community.  I was able to form partnerships for the benefit of our collective student success goals, and as a result, I noticed a profound impact upon my own teaching.  I am grateful for the opportunities I have been granted through this program, and I have seen the ways in which my students have been granted the opportunity to excel as a result.

Social Work

The fellowship provided me with the resources and support to experiment with new ideas in the classroom, which allowed me to creatively explore new directions in my research and teaching. This year, I developed new classroom techniques aimed at enhancing students’ empathy along with new research to assess the effectiveness of those classroom techniques. The fellowship also encouraged my engaging with an expanded network of colleagues who helped bring fresh perspectives to my areas of interest. This experience was a perfect post-tenure opportunity to refresh my research ideas and rekindle my academic passions, both inside and outside the classroom!

The P3 Collaboratory's Scholar-in-Residence fellowship is a wonderful opportunity for those interested in taking time to think about ways in which they can bring together three of our challenges as teachers and faculty members at RU-N: professional development, teaching, and research. As I see it, the fundamental challenge the P3 presents faculty is how to be the best version of yourself for the benefit of the young people we serve.

The Scholar-in-Residence role has been one of the best professional development experiences I have had in my career.  This role has given me the opportunity to work on a passion project, which supports underrepresented students who want to pursue clinical work in psychology.  Having the support of P3 demonstrated to other entities in my field that the issue at hand was crucial and encouraged them to get involved as well.  With the support of the P3, we successfully applied to grants within our first year.  This role has also allowed me to connect with professionals across various disciplines, who are passionate about diversity, equity, and inclusion work.

When I took up the Scholar-in-Residence fellowship in early 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, I hoped to build support for other faculty members struggling to balance childcare with research and writing at a particularly challenging time. It was beyond gratifying to make connections with more than 90 other faculty members at Rutgers-Newark who identify as caregivers. Yet what has made this experience a career-changing one has been the opportunity to better understand and to proactively define the relationship between my own roles as caregiver, educator, and scholar, and my commitment to faculty development. I have deeply appreciated all I have received at P3 in the form of mentorship, advocacy, and logistical support.

Public Affairs & Administration

Through the Chancellor’s Scholar-in-Residence Fellowship, I experienced an opportunity to focus my research on Open Educational Resources (OER) at arts and culture-based organizations in Newark, Montclair, and Morristown, NJ. Throughout the program, I benefited from encouragement, direction, and support. The regularly scheduled staff meetings were empowering and, along with my research findings, guided me in recognizing and appreciating the scope of accessible, innovative field-specific OER databases, in diversifying Public Administration education.

The Scholar-in-Residence Fellowship’s greatest feature was the inclusion of time with the support of staff and educators to regularly talk through complex teaching issues. That time allowed me to deeply think about how my development as Teaching Track faculty can be beneficial to not only my department but also Rutgers-Newark. As a result, I ran a course introducing students at all levels to education-based research by practitioners and research faculty. I also made significant progress towards a campus learning community focused on exploring alternative assessment strategies and implementing a STEM specific training around inclusive teaching practices for teaching assistants. It even helped me identify accessibility concerns with my plans to incorporate AR/VR in my classes. I deeply appreciated that the fellowship allowing me the space to safely learn (even through failure) in community with other instructors and faculty.
