What Fellows are saying about the Mid-Career Fellowship Program:


John Nadig, 2013-2014 Fellow Mathematics, Mercer County Community College

While doing research on student engagement and taking classes, I was reminded how highly effective instructors inspire and support student engagement and achievement. It has been a powerful experience professionally and a memorable experience personally.


Augustine Nigro, 2013-2014 Fellow History, Atlantic Cape Community College

The Fellowship has given me the chance to step back from my teaching, think of new ways to help my students, and given me the chance to learn from my wonderful colleagues in the program.


Christine Pipitone-Herron, 2012-2013 Fellow English, Raritan Valley Community College

The Princeton University Mid-Career Fellowship Program was the most invigorating and transformative professional development experience of my career. I will return to my campus with ideas to last me for years.


Saul Kelton, 2012-2013 Fellow Psychology and Philosophy, Middlesex County Community College

My time as a Fellow has been intellectually fruitful and personally rewarding. My enthusiasm for philosophy and scholarship has blossomed anew, as a fragrant and delicate flower does in the warmth of the sun in spring.

Carol Friend, 2011-2012 Fellow Sociology & Linguistics, Mercer County Community College

Attending the Mid-Career Fellows Program at Princeton University has been a life changing experience in my professional life. I learned that there is an important intersection between economic policy and public policy issues in education. As an educator, I rarely considered this before my coursework and my research project. I will take my experiences and knowledge back to my college feeling revitalized and intellectually nourished. I am grateful for the opportunity to study at one of the best Universities in the world. I am sad to be leaving. 


Christopher Gazzara, 2011-2012 Fellow English, Burlington County College

The MCFP resuscitated my academic vigor, but not in some dreamy, atmospheric sense. The seminars were challenging but comforting, uniting us all in manic goodwill. The opportunity to sit in on Dr. Carol Greenhouse's Political Anthropology course was a thrill, for it attuned me to students who exhibit the same academic challenges and successes as my own. CC faculty can benefit from such exposure, and thanks to the MCFP for providing the chance.
