Collins Scholars

The Collins Scholars Program for new engineering faculty and instructors exists to help you get your career off to an efficient and productive start. The program provides a culture of support for teaching, research and service.

Collins Scholars meet every Friday from 12-1 p.m. for lunch to discuss topics related to teaching and research.  Participants share classroom experiences and receive input from others. Collins Scholars also visit the classrooms of excellent teachers and are observed at least once during the academic year.

The 2018-2019 Collins Scholars Program will begin on August 24, 2018, with a kick-off event and reception. All new faculty are invited for this workshop that includes lunch, a welcome from Interim Dean Tamer Başar, and panel discussions on topics relevant to new faculty.

Congratulations to the 2017-2018 Collins Scholars!
