  • The Diversity as Mission Fellowships aim to enhance the diversity of professoriate at GCU by offering opportunities for emerging scholars who are from communities that are underrepresented in academia to develop their teaching, research, and service experience. These scholars animate GCU’s Mercy Catholic mission by enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion as inherent to the work of a social justice which centers the whole person.

    Dissertation fellows work towards completing their dissertation and engage in ongoing research and scholarship while becoming familiar with the usual service responsibilities of a university faculty member. Fellows are housed in their relevant academic department or the Sister Mary Joseph Cunningham Library and are affiliated with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. They teach one course in their discipline each semester and serve the university in various capacities. Fellows receive mentorship from a senior faculty member.

  • Teach one course in relevant academic department
  • Community presentations/workshops related to academic research
  • Programming and initiatives related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in conjunction with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
