Vice Chancellor and Provost Michele G. Wheatly has announced the appointments of faculty members Dennis Kinsey, Brian Lonsway and Melissa Luke to serve as Provost Faculty Fellows.
Luke is associate dean for research and a Dean’s Professor in the Department of Counseling and Human Services in the School of Education. Her area of focus will be on programs associated with ongoing professional and career development for faculty, broadly speaking.
With the momentum of the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence established last year, Luke will engage with faculty across campus to develop and implement programming that will augment and extend professional support for teaching excellence and classroom instruction. This will include programming to assist faculty in their efforts to create greater work-life balance, creating a culture of mentorship, promote inclusion and further develop leadership and scholarly skills.
“It is an honor to serve Syracuse University as a Provost Faculty Fellow, and I am inspired by this opportunity to support interconnected campuswide initiatives focusing on faculty development, diversity and leadership.”
