Become a Faculty Fellow

Individual faculty can apply to be a CLASP Faculty Fellow.  Minimum requirements for application include:

  • Two semesters as a CLASP faculty member as demonstrated by inclusion on the CLASP course list (currently there are 220 sections of courses being taught by CLASP faculty)
  • Attendance at a minimum of three CLASP workshops (the workshop series for the Pedagogy and Retention Certificate could count here)
  • Submission of a formal statement detailing specific CLASP-related interventions or pedagogical revisions to assignment design, classroom delivery, or student-conferencing

Interested participants need to complete the three requirements over the course of (no more than) four consecutive semesters.

For more information, contact Anna Plemons at or (509) 335-3876.

Words from our Faculty Fellows:


As a CLASP fellow, I engaged in several projects relating to CLASP’s core goals. I developed and shared several multimodal syllabi geared toward reducing barriers for first-generation students (e.g., using plain language and visual stimuli) and increasing transparency (e.g., articulating how elements of the course relate to overall learning goals). I adapted these to be used by a wide audience and now have templates available on my website at: I further did a critical re-design of some of my Introductory Psychology lectures to ensure that students saw research from underpresented scientists on nearly-all course days, and developed a Health Psychology course where the reading list was 50% white women, people of color, and/or queer folks. Both projects were done to make it so students could see themselves reflected in the work we were discussing. Finally, I started work on using open educational materials. That has now evolved into the development of open access materials for a core psychology class, Psychology as a Science, in addition to research projects on the impacts of open education resources, with the ultimate goal of eliminating textbook costs for students.”
