College Fellows

In the early spring of 2008, the Honors Residential College (HRC) established its College Fellows. As is the case with fellows of colleges in Oxford and Cambridge, these fellows commit to being involved in the life of the college by participating in lectures and other opportunities.

In addition, the HRC provides a venue for its fellows to share their research and teaching experiences together throughout the year in informal settings. While fellows are not obligated to any teaching duties within the college, the HRC serves as an intellectual home for fellows from diverse academic backgrounds.

Nominations for new fellows will be sought each spring. Fellows will be elected by the Board of Trustees.
