Faculty

The SLAT Interdisciplinary Graduate Program includes over 70 faculty members from 17 academic departments at the University of Arizona housed in four different colleges. The national/international stature of senior faculty is attested by their having served as Presidents of such major organization as the National Association of Self-Instructional Language Programs, National Conference of Research in English, the National Council of Teachers of English, the Semiotic Society of America, and Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages. Two faculty members are Regents’ Professors, and others have been elected fellows of scholarly academies such as the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the National Academy of Education, the New York Academy of Sciences, the Australian Academy of Social Sciences, and others. SLAT faculty members have also served on the State of Arizona Foreign Language Articulation Task Force and on the Elementary Foreign Language Task Force of the State Board of Education.

The scope of faculty expertise is perhaps best illustrated by members’ past or present editorial and advisory board membership for different professional journals (including Bilingual Research Journal, Child Development, Cognition, Cognitive Linguistics, Discourse and Society, Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, Journal of Educational Research, Journal of French Language Studies, Journal of Intensive English Studies, Journal of Literacy Research, Journal of Memory and Language, Language, Language Arts, Language and Education, Linguistic Inquiry, Modern Language Journal, Reading Research Quarterly, Research on the Teaching of English, Review of Educational Research, Syntax, Teacher Education, TESOL Quarterly, and Written Communication). Faculty members have received external funding for their research from many different corporations and agencies. Honors accorded faculty include Fulbright, Spencer, NEH, Mellon and MacArthur Fellowships, funding from governmental agencies such as the Department of Education, National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, National Security Education Program, Ford Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and awards for excellence in teaching, advising, mentoring, and or contributions to language education, in addition to recognition for scholarship.

Several SLAT faculty are serving or have served in important administrative roles on campus. These include the Dean and Associate Dean of the College of Humanities, Associate Dean of the College of Education; Associate Dean in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences; heads of various language departments, and the Departments of Linguistics, and Language, Reading and Culture; the Director of the Center for English as a Second Language (CESL); the Director of the Cognitive Science Program; directors/coordinators of basic language instruction; Director of the Program in English Language/Linguistics (offering the M.A. in ESL. Two SLAT Faculty have held this title), the Writing Skills Improvement Program, the American Indian Language Development Institute, the Federal Court Interpreter Certification Project, and the Critical Languages Program.

All SLAT faculty are expected to maintain an active agenda in scholarship (research, publication, and teaching), and to serve as members of students’ examination and dissertation committees. In addition, most are expected to become faculty mentors for one or more SLAT students within their area of specialization. Mentors not only provide assistance and encouragement for student research and publication (described above), but also serve as academic role models, and enhance student socialization to the values, norms, practices, and attitudes of the discipline.

The Chair of the Executive Council/Director of SLAT provides information and evaluation of the interdisciplinary contributions of SLAT faculty members who are undergoing their third-year review or are being considered for tenure and/or promotion. SLAT also cooperates in department recruitment processes, particularly when faculty are to have responsibilities related to second language acquisition and teaching. In addition, the Executive Council provides information that is used in the annual departmental evaluations of regular SLAT faculty.
