Provost announces Request for Nominations
for Margaret MacVicar Faculty Fellows


The Margaret MacVicar Faculty Fellows Program was established in 1991 to recognize and enhance undergraduate teaching at MIT. This program honors the life and contributions of our late colleague, Margaret MacVicar, who was dean for Undergraduate Education. Any member of the MIT community may submit nominations.

The nomination should be a substantial case. Along with three supporting letters from students, it should include a nominating letter documenting the contributions of the nominee, three supporting letters from faculty, a curriculum vitae of the nominee and an endorsement by his or her department head. Nominations should be submitted to Provost Robert A. Brown no later than Friday, October 27, 2001 (mail to 5-208). If you have any questions about the nomination process, please contact Helen Samuels, 8-0310, hwsamuel@mit.edu, 5-208.

All tenured, full-time members of the regular faculty are eligible for appointment as a MacVicar Faculty Fellow. In addition, the Advisory Committee will consider three-year MacVicar Faculty Fellowships for junior faculty. These are convertible to regular 10-year MacVicar Faculty Fellowships if tenure occurs. A MacVicar Faculty Fellow may simultaneously be the holder of a named professorship.
