Current Fellows

Thinking Matters Fellows

Fellows who lead Thinking Matters sections and tutorials are recruited from a national search for up to a three-year term. They are chosen because of their familiarity with the problems and topics of the courses as well as experience and expertise in working with first year students. The regular and close contact with students significantly enhances frosh learning, particularly in the crucial areas of critical inquiry, analysis, reading and writing.
