Faculty Information and Resources


Faculty Mentor Directory

We encourage you to join our Faculty Mentor Directory.  One of the hallmarks of Honors for our students is the ability to engage in independent research with a valued mentor.  By adding your name and area of expertise to this Directory, Honors students will know that you are willing to work with them on such things as independent studies and Honors Theses.  If you would like to be included in this directory or update your information, please e-mail honorsprogram@villanova.edu.

Course Proposals

We welcome proposals for new upper level elective courses from faculty across the University.  Faculty who teach in Honors consistently say it’s among the most rewarding pedagogical experiences they have had at Villanova.  The Honors Course Proposal Guidelines and accompanying document, Honors-Who We Are, are in PDF attachments below.

Anne Quinn Welsh Honors Faculty Fellows Program

The Honors Program is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications from tenured faculty for the Anne Quinn Welsh Honors Faculty Fellows Program. Successful applicants will be appointed to a two-year term starting in the 2015-2016 academic year, and will retain their appointment in their home department. They will teach a 2-2 load in exchange for advising and mentoring responsibilities in Honors. Faculty Fellows agree to teach at least one Honors course each semester during their appointment. Applications are due to the Honors Office by 5:00 pm on October 10, 2014. Further application details can be found in the document below.

Team Teaching Summer Award

The Honors Program is pleased to announce the creation of a faculty development program for full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty to encourage the development of new interdisciplinary team-taught courses.  The development of the course will occur over the summer; course will be taught during the spring semester of the following year.  Deadlines will be posted when applications are being received for this award.

The chosen faculty will each receive a $4,000 stipend and a budget of up to $2,000 to aid in the course’s development.  Faculty submitting proposals should obtain all the appropriate releases from their chairs and deans.  We particularly welcome proposals from faculty across different colleges.  Current courses or courses that have been taught before will not be considered.
