Don M. Randel Teaching Fellowships
The Don M. Randel Teaching Fellowships provide funding for a full year of support for two outstanding graduate students in music. The goal is to allow outstanding students the opportunity to focus on their teaching development and provide both an impetus and an opportunity to create innovative undergraduate courses. Chosen from a competitive process, awardees will work with a designated teaching mentor from the music faculty, Randel fellows will spend their first semester preparing a new Department of Music course (which may also be cross-listed with another department or program) and teach that course in the second semester.
The fellowships were named in honor of professor emeritus and former Cornell Provost Don M. Randel, who championed throughout his long career inspired undergraduate instruction and the value of music in liberal arts education.
