Teaching Policy

The President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is designed to provide new scholars with time to focus on research and publishing activities that will enhance their prospects for appointment as  tenure-track faculty members. The terms of the fellowships do not allow teaching without prior approval from the faculty mentor and the program director. It will be approved only if the teaching opportunity appears to serve the fellow's career development.

All requests to teach must be submitted for approval to the faculty mentor and then to the fellowship program office for approval. Requests to the program office may be made by email (umd-postdocs@umd.edu).
