Five Faculty Named First-Year Fellows at Roosevelt

I’m honored to be part of the First-Year Faculty Fellows team at Roosevelt University, where I just finished my 20th year of teaching. Looking forward to working with these and other great colleagues on our ACP curricular efforts!

Linda Jones, Dean of Undergraduate Studies at RU, announced the first class of First-Year Faculty Fellows to the university community in today’s broadcast email:

  • Michael Bryson, professor of Sustainability Studies, who will teach his Our Sustainable Future section of ACP 101 that was first offered last fall.
  • Anne-Marie Cusac, associate professor of Journalism, who taught ACP 101 First-Year Seminar for the first time in its initial offering in 2011.
  • Sandra Frink, associate professor of History, who will teach a new First-Year Seminar section entitled Chicago: Past & Present.
  • Elizabeth Meadows, associate professor of Elementary Education/Reading, who will teach a new First-Year Seminar section entitled Becoming a Teacher.
  • Kelly Wentz-Hunter, associate professor of Biology, who will teach her 21st Century Health Care section of ACP 101 that was first offered in 2014.

Each of the five fellows has committed to teaching at least one of the 100-level Academic Communities of Practice classes (First-Year Seminar and Primary Texts) in each fall and spring term of 2016-17 and 2017-18. Even more important to the futures of the two courses, they will act as core faculty for ACP classes, evaluating, reviewing and advising on their content and revision. They also will be central to pedagogy workshops, orientation and skill-building sessions for faculty teaching freshmen.
