Faculty Fellows help integrate academic and residential life by living in the residential colleges with students for three-year stints. There are eight Faculty Fellows living in the residential colleges, including the newest members: Carl Craver, PhD, associate professor of philosophy, and Rebecca Wanzo, PhD, associate professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, both in Arts & Sciences.
