Established in 1995 in honor of Adolph Weil, the Weil Fellow in the Arts and Humanities is awarded to persons of distinguished achievement in the arts and humanities: writers, artists or renowned scholars in one or more of the liberal arts disciplines.
The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences offers students a traditional liberal arts education to meet the needs of the 21st century, allowing them to compete for a variety of careers in an increasingly complex and evolving world.
Weil Fellows may teach classes at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; conduct public lectures, demonstrations, or exhibitions; organize and conduct special seminars; provide individual or small group tutorials; and perform other activities that enhance the liberal arts learning experience.
