Advisory Board

The Board’s membership includes one tenured faculty member or senior lecturer representative from each of the university’s seven colleges, in addition to a P&S staff member with significant teaching responsibilities. Their regular term of service is three years. In addition, the president-elect of the Faculty Senate, a Graduate and Professional Student Senate representative, and an undergraduate student government representative 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)
