University of Connecticut Teaching Fellows engage in a number of teaching and learning activities including participation in workshops developed by the Institute for Teaching & Learning, allowing teaching assistants to visit their classrooms, and serving as mentors for faculty in their discipline or cognate areas. The Teaching Fellows program started in 1993 with the designation of four awards. Up to four awards may be given each year and only a limited number of faculty members hold the title university-wide. The determination of the recipients is made by the Institute for Teaching & Learning Advisory Board. The fellowship is for life and carries a one-time stipend. As of the 2014-2015 academic year, only 42 active faculty members, hold this elite title.
