PhD candidate Sujee Jung selected as 2018-19 Honors College Teaching Fellow

August 30, 2018

Bloustein School PhD candidate Sujee Jung has been selected a Rutgers Honors College Teaching Fellow for the 2018-19 academic year.

The Honors College Teaching Fellows Program is an innovative scholarly collaboration designed to enrich the educational experience for both undergraduate and graduate students associated with the Honors College. Undergraduates have the opportunity to work directly with advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who serve as instructional fellows and mentors throughout the year. Teaching Fellows are trained and mentored by faculty and deans to teach the Honors College mission course, the Forum.

In addition, Teaching Fellows meet regularly with faculty and Honors College deans in a collegial community based in the shared experience of teaching leading to scholarly development. Through teaching and informal interaction with students, Fellows participate in the creation of the Honors College living and learning community centered in the new facility. This dedicated residence, where all first-year Honors College students live, also houses the administrative offices of the Honors College, seminar rooms where Forum sections meet, and apartments for faculty fellows.

Sujee’s dissertation topic is “Transnational Planning and its Problem (The Case of Red River Megacity Development in Hanoi City, Vietnam).” At the Bloustein School, she is a teaching assistant to the undergraduate level Introduction to GIS and both the graduate and undergraduate level Graphic Communications for Planners courses.

This year’s 12 fellows were selected from a pool of over 90 candidates.
