The Center for Principle-Based Leadership and Ethics (PBLE) at the University of Wyoming
(UW), supported by the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative (DFEI), in collaboration with
the Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning (ECTL) invites applications for two-year
(AY 24 & 25) Daniels Fund Faculty Fellowships. Daniels Fund Faculty Fellows play an
important role in helping PBLE advance the mission of the DFEI’s Collegiate Program,
which is to engage students and university stakeholders through principle-based ethics
education and thereby prepare them to make ethical decisions in their personal and
professional lives. The Daniels Fund Faculty Fellowship Program promotes the idea
that ethics is an important discussion topic in all disciplines and that timeless
ethical principles (e.g., integrity, respect, fairness)—when internalized—can guide
individuals toward ethical decisions.
Daniels Fund Faculty Fellows are primarily expected to advance the DFEI mission by
developing a teaching activity integrating the DFEI principles (see Appendix A) for
their course or seminar to help students learn to make principle-based ethical decisions
within their field. Past faculty fellows have developed case-based assignments, external
projects, as well entire course modules comprising several activities integrating
the DFEI principles. Over the two-year period, fellows first develop their proposed
teaching activity (in Year 1) and then test a revision to their activity (in Year
2) through a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Project directed by the ECTL. Fellow’s
teaching activities are archived for others on campus to access. To access past reports
and activities, please click here. In addition, fellows are expected to promote student involvement in DFEI-supported
campus programming (speakers, courses, conferences, etc.) and champion principle-based
ethics education within their disciplines. For their contributions and support, faculty
fellows receive a $2,500 stipend annually (or $5000 or the entire fellowship) and
the designation as a Daniels Fund Faculty Fellow.
If you are interested in receiving a Daniels Fund Faculty Fellowship for the 2024
and 2025 academic year, please submit your proposal here.
Applicants describe their proposed project(s) relating to a new teaching activity,
provide a detailed explanation of how the DFEI principles would be integrated into
the proposed activity, the project’s timeline, and, finally, how the impact of the
new activity would be evaluated. Applications are due April 7th, 2023 and will be promptly reviewed.
The committee will evaluate applications on:
Fellows are expected to provide short oral and written reports of their year one and
year two projects for archival. Fellows present their oral reports at a retreat in
August. Faculty fellows also meet for lunch in January to provide progress updates.
Finally, in Year 2, fellows meet an additional four times to receive guidance on their
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Project.
Fellowship award decisions will be announced by April 28th, 2023.
