The Society seeks to enhance the role of the humanities in the University by exploring and clarifying relationship within the humanities as well as their relationship to the natural and social sciences. The program is designed to strengthen the intellectual and academic qualifications of the fellows: First, by affording them the time and resources to develop independent scholarship within a broadening educational and professional context; second, by involving them in interdisciplinary programs of general education and in innovative courses of their own design; and third, by associating them individually and collectively with some of the finest teaching scholars in the University. Fellows are appointed for one year at a rank equivalent to that of lecturer. The appointment is ordinarily renewed for a second year.
Each fellow is required to teach a section in one of the major introductory courses in general education: Contemporary Civilization, Literature Humanities, Music Humanities, Art Humanities, Asian Civilizations, Asian Humanities, or Major Cultures including: civilizations of Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. In the second year, fellows may take the opportunity to develop and teach an experimental one-semester course in addition to the course in the core curriculum.
