USC Center for Excellence in Teaching Fall Recruitment 2014

The Undergraduate Fellows of CET (Center for Excellence in Teaching) are recruiting new fellows for the 2014-2015 school year! Do you have ideas about campus enrichment that you want to put into action? Thoughts about how to improve the undergraduate learning environment? Then apply today!

A branch of the Center for Excellence in Teaching, based out of the Provost’s Office, the Undergraduate Fellows are uniquely poised to influence and improve the intellectual climate of USC. Last year we sponsored a number of successful events, including Student-Led Seminars, a study skills workshop for incoming students, CETalks: Finding the Right Major, Now You Know: How to Get Research, and a faculty speaker series event. We were also honored with a Tommy Award for Best Academic Organization of the Year. Our efforts, collaborations, and interactions with faculty have made a positive impact on the USC campus and continue to do so.

In addition to being provided with mentorship, support and resources to help put your ideas into action, new UFs will benefit from unparalleled networking opportunities with university faculty and staff, the first of which will be an exclusive welcome mixer to honor our newly accepted fellows.
