Abstract
Budget constrictions continued to limit departmental capacities to contribute senior faculty time to teach in University Studies, particularly Freshman Inquiry. In response, Charles White, Associate Dean for University Studies, conceived the idea of teaching fellows? joint appointments of new Ph.D.s who not only would inject new enthusiasm, but also would partially compensate departments for the involvement of their tenured faculty. This provided an innovative opportunity for young faculty who were dedicated to teaching to gain an unusual interdisciplinary experience and expanded the teaching resources available to the new program.
