Inclusive Excellence Postdoctoral Teaching Fellows
Loyola’s Inclusive Excellence Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowships are a University strategic initiative to provide talented candidates, especially from underrepresented groups, with an exceptional opportunity to prepare for potential careers as scholar-teachers through high-quality experience at a Jesuit institution committed to academic excellence and social justice. Fellows teach four courses per year, with the opportunity to participate in the University’s first-year living-learning program called Messina, if applicable. The fellowships come with access to research funds, department and University mentors to help establish research and teaching agenda, and access to a potential consortium of postdoctoral diversity programs at participating Jesuit institutions. Eligible candidates must have received their Ph.D. no earlier than 2013.
The Inclusive Excellence Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship initiative is sponsored by the office of academic affairs. For more information, contact Cheryl Moore-Thomas, interim associate vice president for faculty affairs and diversity & professor of education specialties.

Education Department faculty create and foster relationships with a variety of urban and suburban schools, allowing students to become involved with the community and faculty to conduct diverse research initiatives. Small classes allow faculty to work closely with graduate and undergraduate students and "smart" classrooms support a variety of teaching approaches and resources.
