The goal of the BOLD Faculty Fellows Program is to engage faculty in the development and implementation of the College of Engineering and Applied Science’s inclusive excellence efforts. The BOLD Center will welcome up to three new BOLD Faculty Fellows and one Senior BOLD Faculty Fellow to join our efforts in the 2019–20 school year. Past BOLD Faculty Fellows are now invited to apply to become Senior BOLD Faculty Fellows.

Fellows are expected to contribute to the mission of the BOLD Center and to promote a diversity and inclusion in our college. Fellows should align their agenda with the strategic aim of the BOLD Center, which is to improve recruitment, retention and climate within the college.
