Wimmer Faculty Fellows-Celebration of Education - Carnegie Mellon University

Wimmer Faculty Fellows

These fellowships are made possible by a grant from the Wimmer Family Foundation and are designed for junior faculty members interested in enhancing their teaching through concentrated work designing or redesigning a course, innovating new materials or exploring a new pedagogical approach. Fellows work in close collaboration with the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence and Educational Innovation and receive a stipend to acknowledge the work it takes to improve one's effectiveness as an educator.
