📢 Call for Nominations: USG Chancellor’s Learning Scholars

UGA has been invited by the University System of Georgia to invite four outstanding faculty to apply to join the third cohort of Chancellor’s Learning Scholars (CLS). They are looking for faculty who are recognized for excellence in teaching at UGA to facilitate a faculty interest group on an instructional topic identified by the USG for two years. 

The 2020-2021 topics directly follow from the challenges presented to faculty during the pandemic, namely Best Practices of Online Teaching and the development of Hybrid and F2F High Impact Practices (HIPS). Important goals of the CLS program are to create course materials and other resources for USG schools and faculty and to articulate teaching strategies that could be applied to hundreds of USG courses.

Upon successful completion of the program, each CLS will receive a $1,000 stipend per year, along with reimbursement each year for up to $500 for books, supplies, and refreshments. If you are interested in this wonderful opportunity to work with colleagues and improve teaching and student success at UGA and across the USG, send an email to by August 14 indicating your interest in being nominated.
