The Big 12 Faculty Fellowship Program at WVU is designed to stimulate scholarly initiatives through the creation of an academic community within the institutions in the Big 12 Athletic Conference. The Big 12 Faculty Fellowship Program offers WVU faculty members the opportunity to travel to member institutions to exchange ideas and research. Faculty may work on collaborative research, consult with faculty and students, offer a series of lectures or symposia, acquire new skills, or take advantage of a unique archive or laboratory facility.
Martucci will visit Iowa State University so that she can engage in a workshop session of their Emerging Leaders Academy (ELA) and interact with current participants and alumni from the program. She will meet with the ELA’s co-directors Katharine Hensley, faculty success coordinator in the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost, and Tera Jordon, assistant provost for faculty development and associate professor in human development and family studies. The ELA was established in 2009 as an academic-year initiative to better prepare faculty and professional and scientific staff who serve in leadership roles or aspire to hold leadership positions. It is expected that these experiences and face-to-face discussions will help move a similar program forward at West Virginia University and generate an Iowa State-WVU shared faculty development workshop with Big 12 partners.
Each award recipient will receive up to $2,500 to support their travel and research with Big 12 colleagues.
