VCU HHMI Inclusive Excellence Fellows Program

The VCU HHMI Inclusive Excellence (IE) Program is a five-year grant funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). Now in its third year, the program is positioning VCU, JTCC, and Reynolds to increase the use of inclusive methods of teaching in STEM classes, build the administrative infrastructure for transfer students, and enhance the institutional climate to promote student success.

Selected fellows will work for one year with grant leadership, the VCU Transfer Center, and the VCU Campus Learning Center to support the implementation of the VCU HHMI IE Program. We are requesting applications for the third cohort of fellows to work in the following areas:

  • Institute for Inclusive Teaching (IIT) in STEM
  • Transfer Center 
  • Science Hub
  • Evaluation & Research


Fellow positions are open to all full-time faculty and staff from VCU, Reynolds, or JTCC, with a minimum of three consecutive years of service at the institution. Faculty and staff from all disciplines are welcome to apply.


Fellowship positions include compensation, in various forms, at the equivalent amount of $7,500 per year, including, but not limited to course buyout, overload contract, summer salary, stipend, professional development funds, or any combination thereof.

More information can be found on the application form. Please submit your application and supplemental materials by 5 p.m. on Monday, March 15, 2021.
