Senior Fellows are NSU faculty members, NSU administrators or members of the larger Hampton Roads community whose primary function is to help raise awareness of and funds for the Honors College and to support its goals actively and enthusiastically.

Senior Fellows are invited to attend Honors College events both on and off campus plus weekly Honors Cafés at the Midrise Honors College Residential Hall in order to interact with students under the leadership of the Dean of the Honors College.

Senior Fellows (approximately 35 in number) are appointed by the President for a renewable term of two years. NSU faculty members will receive credit on their faculty evaluations commensurate with their service; preference will be given to faculty who are currently teaching Honors courses, have taught such courses, or are willing to teach them in the future.

Faculty may self-nominate by sending a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Dr. Page Laws, Dean of the RCN Honors College. The deadline for self-nominating or nominating others is August 1, 2018. Call ext. 8208 for more information.
