Sarah Finn and Melissa Pearson Receive Professional Development Funds to Advance Instructional Training

People in this story

Sarah Finn, Associate Teaching Professor in English, and Melissa Pearson, Assistant Teaching Professor in English, have been awarded full-time faculty professional funds from Northeastern’s Provost’s Office to advance their professional instruction training.

Professor Finn is conducting research on community engagement courses and their civic impact on students after they take these courses. She will be using her development funds to fund Nuria Roxana Romero for her work as an undergraduate research partner. Nuria has contributed to this research project from the start, along with serving as Professor Finn’s Teaching Assistant for four community engagement courses since Fall 2017.

Professor Pearson wrote her proposal with an idea towards expanding and supporting racial literacy in Northeastern’s Writing Program. She will be using her funds to provide reading materials and resources towards bolstering group dialogue and study in the department’s first Master Class series.

We are excited to see the work produced by these projects and we congratulate Sarah and Melissa on this great accomplishment!
