How to Become a Pulte Institute Faculty Fellow

Individuals interested in becoming a Pulte Institute Faculty Fellow may have a colleague or supervisor nominate them for the program, or they may submit a self-nomination. Acceptance to the program is contingent upon the applicant's holistic body of work work and its identified relevance to the Institute's mission and current, five-year Strategic Plan: 2019–2024.

Upon acceptance to the program, Pulte Institute Faculty Fellows are appointed a five-year term, renewable upon completion. This appointment involves no additional compensation. The Pulte Institute may, at times, allow accepted applicants to join the program on a nominal basis. Such arrangements—which are determined at the Institute's discretion—are designed to grow the Pulte Institute's internal community of practitioners while assuring that minimal time is diverted from accepted applicants' other responsibilities. 

If you, or someone you know, would be a good fit for the Pulte Institute Faculty Fellows program, please contact Edward Jurkovic at ejurkovi@nd.edu, or (574) 631-9856.

  • The Innovation and Practice Division will oversee the groups focused on Sustainability and Humanitarianism. 
  • The Entrepreneurship and Education Division will oversee the group focused on Business in Development.
  • The Evaluation and Learning Division will oversee the groups focused on Global Health and Effective States and Development.
