About the Brown Center

The Brown Center for Faculty Innovation and Excellence at Stetson University, made possible through generous donations by Hyatt and Cici Brown, began offering programming in August 2014. The directives for the center are two-fold: (1) to ensure active and continuous support of Stetson Faculty as life-long leaders and innovators and (2) to assert Stetson as a national higher education leader by modeling the University’s distinctive character of learning and teacher-scholar role for future faculty.

Vision & Funding Priorities

The Center promotes faculty vitality and vibrancy through learning opportunities that advance student engagement in and outside of the classroom. The center offers faculty mentoring and peer development programming, enterprising seminars and workshops, teaching and learning consultations, and learning technology support to enrich and sustain excellence in all facets of faculty life: learning and teaching, scholarship, leadership and service.

<<funding guidelines>>

Empowerment, inclusion, innovation, and distinction comprise the four pillars of the Brown Center. Program, activities, and assessments are designed with an inclusive lens so we may truly become a diverse community of inclusive excellence.

The flagship program of the center is the Brown Teacher-Scholar Fellows Program. Visiting assistant professors are invited to bring a niche area of expertise to Stetson that has cross-disciplinary impact on the university community.
