USC Connect

Faculty Fellows

Faculty are an integral part of the USC Connect team. Faculty Fellows serve as advocates for integrative learning and provide faculty perspectives and recommendations to USC Connect. They support students in developing Graduation with Leadership Distinction e-portfolios and explore the application of integrative learning strategies to their own programs. Faculty Fellows collaborate with USC Connect and one another to assess student learning and pursue scholarship opportunities including national presentations and publications. A Senior Faculty Associate leads coordination and professional development for instructors of UNIV 401 Graduation with Leadership Distinction.
