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.

Pulte Institute Faculty Fellows, upon acceptance of their nomination, are appointed up to a three-year term (or a term matched to the end of their faculty appointment, whichever is shorter), renewable upon completion. This appointment involves no additional compensation. Nomination is contingent upon the Fellows’ work and its identified relevance to the Pulte Institute strategic plan. Appointment is contingent upon the approval of the Dean of the Keough School of Global Affairs, the Primary Department Chair of the nominee, and the Senior Associate Provost. The Pulte Institute may, at times, invite Faculty Fellows to nominal commitments, designed to allow for the development of an internal community of practitioners, while ensuring minimal time taken from Fellows’ other responsibilities. In turn, the program ensures that Fellows receive tangible benefits from the Pulte Institute.
