Brady Faculty Fellow

The Brady Faculty Fellow is part of a team of Northwestern faculty and graduate students who work closely with Brady undergraduates. The Fellow participates in the intellectual and social life of the Brady Program, and devotes time to the development of a new undergraduate course, or the revision of an already existing course, whose content is related to the goals and values of the Brady Scholars Program.  These include the exploration of ethical and political issues, community service, domestic and international citizenship.
