Assistant Professor Dr. Casey Clay was recently selected to take part in University of Missouri Faculty Scholars (UMFS) program. UMFS is designed for second, third or fourth-year faculty members, and aims to assist them in adjusting to new academic responsibilities, as well as encouraging their retention. Members are introduced to new teaching methods and are encouraged to network across their campus and the four campuses of the University of Missouri System. The cohort supports their scholarly work through forums, retreats, and opportunities to collaborate with more experienced faculty.
Around sixty members are selected each year to join UMFS. Applicants must be endorsed by their department chair and agree to attend all three retreats. Applications are due each year by June 1st.
