Future Associates and Fellows Research Appointments
Each year, the tenured and untenured University of Illinois faculty are
invited to submit scholarly or creative proposals for consideration by
the Center’s permanent Professors. Faculty members with winning
proposals are appointed Associates and Fellows and awarded one semester
of release time to pursue their projects in the coming academic year.
In accordance with the Center’s mission, these appointments provide an
incentive to pursue the highest level of scholarly achievement. They
also provide faculty members with an unusual opportunity to explore new
ideas and demonstrate early results.
With the Professors, Associates and Fellows form the intellectual core
of the Center for Advanced Study community. They are invited to
participate in CAS events and have opportunities to present their work
to the CAS community. Thus, each year brings together the established
and the new in an ever-changing flux of ideas and disciplines.
