Teaching Scholars Institute

The Teaching Scholars Institute is a collaborative effort among UT Martin, Murray State University, and Western Kentucky University. Faculty members attend seminars and spend time discussing and reflecting on issues common to all faculty at the three regional institutions. To participate in this program, faculty members are nominated by their Deans. For more information, call the Office of Research, Grants, and Contracts at 881.7015.
