The Global Scholars/Practitioners-in-Residence program seeks to attract talented individuals from academia or the professions who have outstanding international expertise to teach part-time while also serving as mentors to our students and resources for our faculty and the community. Global Scholars/Practitioners will engage with the campus and community through teaching, public lectures and joint research projects while drawing upon their professional networks to help our faculty, students and the institution as a whole develop new and fruitful external collaborations.
Global Scholar/Practitioner candidates should be nominated by the academic unit to which they will be attached. Nominations must be accompanied by appropriate supporting materials, which include:
Nominations should be directed to Annique Kiel, Interim Executive Director of Global Engagement and International Programs, who will review nomination packages in consultation with GIPAC. Upon the Executive Director's recommendation, the university President will send a letter of invitation to successful candidates. Units considering a nomination are encouraged to consult with PFGCGC Director David Skidmore.
Among the criteria to be considered are the following:
In recognition and in support of their contributions, Global Scholars/Practitioners will receive a stipend, a travel allotment, an appropriate workspace, a computer and access to all university facilities. Global Scholars/Practitioners will be affiliated with an appropriate academic unit for one semester and will offer at least one course. PFGCGC and the relevant department chair will jointly be responsible for facilitating opportunities for the visiting Global Scholar/Practitioner to mentor students and engage in other outreach activities or research collaborations with members of the Drake and Central Iowa communities.
