Framingham State University (FSU) is soliciting applications for the Mary Miles Bibb Teaching Fellowship. This fellowship is named for Mary Miles Bibb, FSU Class of 1843, the University's first African American graduate and the first African American normal school graduate in the United States. After her graduation from FSU, she had a distinguished career as a teacher, journalist, activist, and abolitionist.
In the spirit of Mary Miles Bibb, the University seeks to enhance its inclusive excellence initiatives with the addition of a Bibb fellow, a faculty member who has exhibited sustained and passionate commitments to diversity and inclusion in teaching, scholarship, and/or service. The position begins in September 2017 with the possibility of renewal for the 2018-2019 academic year. Bibb Fellows teach three courses a semester and contribute to their home departments and the FSU community with a focus on inclusive excellence in teaching pedagogies, curriculum development, co-curricular programming, and organizational change.
We welcome applicants who are able to teach in the following academic disciplines, and we encourage interdisciplinary scholars:
- Art & Music
- Chemistry & Food Science
- Fashion Design & Retailing
- Food & Nutrition
- Physics & Earth Science
- Political Science

We seek candidates who have completed their terminal degrees within the past five years and have demonstrated a sustained commitment to diversity and inclusion in their teaching, scholarship, and/or service. Candidates who are nearing completion of their terminal degrees will also be considered. We seek to find Bibb fellows whose teaching pedagogies and areas of interest in scholarship and/or service focus on underrepresented groups in our community.
