Provost Kimo Ah Yun will provide funding during the 2020-2021 academic year (mid-August to mid-May) to support two Provost Fellows to work on important university initiatives.

The Office of the Provost will provide funding for a related workshop/conference (up to $2500) as well as a $2500 stipend for the year. Provost Fellows will roughly work 3-4 hours per week over the academic year.

In addition to working on an important university initiative, Provost Fellows will have the opportunity to attend a workshop or conference related to their projects and agreed upon with his/her project supervisor, meet on a regular basis with a member of the provost's staff whose area is connected to or oversees the initiative, pursue select leadership development opportunities, and interact with the Academic Deans Council/Provost's Cabinet.


Provost Fellows Selected for 2020-2021

Dr. Kristin Haglund, Professor, College of Nursing - Community Engagement

Haglund will oversee the curriculum development and facilitation for the Community of Practice for Community Engaged Scholars.

In 2019-20, Haglund oversaw the development of a set of competencies and the creation of a curriculum for a six-week pilot Community of Practice for Community Engaged Scholars. New and mid-level faculty met at various locations throughout the city to discuss topics including cultural humility, identity/intersectionality, community engagement in research, community engagement in teaching, partnership development/maintenance and grant writing.

Haglund will continue this work through an expansion of the curriculum into a more comprehensive 12-week experience, deepening her understanding of current community engagement best practices in research/teaching, broadening her campus network through one-on-one meetings and larger focus groups with current community engaged scholars and establishing meaningful relationships with local community partners.

Haglund will also work with the Community of Practice to consider innovative approaches and collaborations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Haglund will work closely with Dr. Dan Bergen, executive director of community engagement in the Office of Economic Engagement.


Dr. Martin St. Maurice, Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, Biological Sciences - Undergraduate Research

St. Maurice has mentored approximately 30 undergraduate researchers during his 11 years at Marquette. He seeks to build on efforts to enhance awareness of undergraduate research and expand student access to research opportunities on campus.

As a provost fellow, he will explore mechanisms to increase diversity, equity and inclusion among the students and disciplines participating in research experiences on campus.
