The Daniels Fund Fellows Program at the University of Wyoming (UW) recruits faculty and staff across campus to participate in advancing the mission of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative (DFEI) 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. Each academic year, approximately 7 UW faculty and/or professional staff are selected for this two-year fellowship, which comes with a $2,500 annual stipend (or $5,000 total).
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 fellowshave 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. 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.
Past Faculty Fellow developments:
Fellows are selected by a committee composed of Chase Thiel, Bill Daniels Chair of Business Ethics; Chris Haller, Director of the Center for Principle-Based Leadership and Ethics; and Kent Noble, Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Professor of Business Ethics.
