The BB&T Faculty Leadership Fellows Program (download Spring 2017 call for applications). Since Spring 2013, the Office for Faculty Excellence has partnered with the BB&T Center for Leadership Development to provide a semester long program for faculty. This grant sponsors twelve leadership fellows who meet weekly to consider ways faculty can develop leadership abilities of their students as they teach in their disciplines. The frame of reference for the work is Leadership Reconsidered: Engaging Higher Education in Social Change, the publication provided to all new ECU faculty at orientation. Fellows read and discuss this and other leadership literature, compile and evaluate ideas and strategies for incorporating leadership into college instruction, and implement ideas and strategies into their teaching. In spring 2014 three faculty leadership fellow mentors provided additional support to the program.
