OID Welcomes 2018-19 CUTF Cohort

On June 12, OID hosted the 2018 Collegium of University Teaching Fellows (CUTF) Spring Reception to welcome the 2018-19 CUTF cohort to the program.

The CUTF is a highly sought-after program with limited slots that provides graduate students with a valuable opportunity to develop and teach a lower division seminar in their field of specialization. This experience serves as a “capstone” to the teaching apprenticeship, preparing them for the academic job market and their role as future faculty.

Each year, 19 students are selected to participate in the program. The 2018-19 CUTF fellows and their respective seminars are:

  • Sohaib Baig, History - "Full Moons Rising in Splendor": Muslim Scholars, Poets, and Mystics in 18th Century South Asia
