Presidential Teaching Scholar Fellowships

The purpose of the fellowship program is to provide support for faculty in their commitments to teaching and learning at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Each fellow will be engaged in a teaching and learning project that will be unique and innovative, going beyond routine course preparation and revisions, and enhance both the fellow’s teaching and their students’ learning.
