Because CIPA is an interdisciplinary program, our Fellows take courses from a wide variety of faculty members across the university. 

CIPA core faculty members provide cohesion to the program and coherence in academic advising.  In addition to teaching core courses, they serve as the academic foundation and the central policy-making body of the program. 

Teaching faculty provide supplemental coursework, enhancing the program offerings available to Fellows.

Field faculty members represent colleges, departments, and related disciplines across campus; in  addition to offering policy coursework specific to their particular field of study, these field members also serve as thesis advisors for Fellows.
