Current Fellows Appointments

CAS Fellows are untenured University of Illinois faculty members whose proposals are selected in an annual competition. These appointments grant one semester of teaching release time in order to pursue an individual scholarly or creative project. With the Professors and Associates, they form the core of the Center for Advanced Study Community. Fellows also participate in a yearly roundtable discussion of research interests and are invited to offer a future CAS presentation.
