2.3 Senior Fellows and Center Fellows in Designated Policy Centers and Institutes

Handbook Pages

The ranks of Senior Fellow and Center Fellow were approved by the Senate of the Academic Council in 1990. Senior Fellows at designated policy centers and institutes are members of the Professoriate and the Academic Council. (See Section 1.2.6) Center Fellows at designated policy centers and institutes are members of the Professoriate but are not members of the Academic Council.
2.3.2(1)  Joint appointment as Senior Fellow
The programmatic definition for a Center Fellow appointment is developed by the center or institute director (in consultation with the Senior Fellows), and is subject to review by the cognizant dean. Most Center Fellow appointments are driven by the need for specific expertise relevant to the mission of the policy center or institute. These appointments are specific to a scholarly program and are conditioned on an evaluation of project proposals, as well as by the qualifications of the candidate.
