Advisory Board

The Board’s membership includes one tenure-eligible representative from each of the university’s seven colleges, one tenure-eligible at-large member, and one lecturer or clinician. Their regular term of service is three years. In addition, the president-elect of the Faculty Senate and the president of the Graduate and Professional Student Senate serve one-year terms. A representative from the Office of Student Affairs serves as an ex-officio member of the Board.

The Board has two formal meetings per semester with one additional meeting in the spring semester to discuss their evaluation and ranking of the Miller Faculty Fellowship proposals.

The responsibilities for each Board member include:

  • Advocacy for teaching and learning at ISU
  • Reviewing Miller Faculty Fellowship applications
  • Serving as a college liaison
  • Promoting the scholarship of teaching and learning
  • Publicizing teaching-related events and professional development opportunities
  • Working directly with faculty concerning teaching and learning
  • Serving on ad hoc committees as needed (e.g., grants, awards, service-learning)
