The Whiting Teaching Fellowships were established in 2001 to provide full and partial sabbaticals and research grants to junior faculty in humanities who are judged by their colleagues to be particularly successful teachers. Baruch College, Bates College, Brooklyn College, and Kenyon College participate. The goals of the program are to reward excellent teachers and by so doing to generate increased recognition of good teaching campus-wide. Also, it is hoped that each school administration and faculty will, in the design of their selection process, improve their ability to identify good teaching.
At this time, the database for the Teaching Fellows is not complete.
We study the masters, we love and sometimes hate them, to an extent we shape our lives in their image; but the journeymen, our contemporaries, speak to us more intimately and with greater immediate force.
