Resident Fellows

Resident Fellows are scholars whose primary places of employment are removed from the administrative hub but who are integral members of the teaching faculty of the Nexus. A Resident Fellow is an expert in a special field and is appointed annually to give instruction on a part-time or discontinuous basis. Duties include teaching students within the Teaching Church setting or online classes across the Nexus, as well as advising and mentoring a cohort of students attached to a Teaching Church. Duties usually do not include administrative responsibilities, but the Resident Fellow is expected to be in continual dialogue with the Senior Fellows and Fellows of the Institute with regard to matters concerning a chosen discipline and ways of improving the delivery of courses to Teaching Churches.
