The Madison Collaborative: Ethical Reasoning in Action

Faculty and Student Affairs Fellowship Program


About the Fellowship

The Madison Collaborative: Ethical Reasoning in Action is pleased to offer a one- year (renewable) fellowship for full-time faculty member(s) and full-time Student Affairs professional(s). We seek candidates who wish to deepen their understanding of ethical reasoning in action and extend ethical reasoning educational efforts on campus and beyond. Specific responsibilities will be negotiated depending on the interests and expertise of the Fellow.


Fellows will support existing programs and help to develop new ideas for integrating ethical reasoning into the curriculum and co-curriculum. Activities may include working with specific colleges, programs, faculty, staff, research and innovation grant recipients, and partners beyond campus; planning and participating in educational workshops; developing case scenarios; organizing conferences and planning guest speakers; conducting and/or supporting research on ethical reasoning; and initiating new programs.


Fellows will receive either a reduced teaching load or reduced work assignment from their home units (approximately 10 hours per week) or an honorarium. Specifics of the release time arrangements will be negotiated with unit heads. Contract and salary will remain in the home department of the Fellow. Upon request by the fellow, unit head, or supervisor the MC Chair will contribute to the fellow’s performance evaluation
