SLAT Faculty

The SLAT Interdisciplinary Graduate Program includes over 90 faculty members from 19 academic departments at the University of Arizona housed in four different colleges. 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.  To view a list of faculty by area of specialization, click here.

In addition to area of specialization, the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in SLAT recognizes three levels of faculty membership in SLAT:

  • Regularfaculty membership in SLAT is available to tenured or tenure-track faculty in any department or program at The University of Arizona who have a significant level of interest and expertise related to second language acquisition and teaching, including Linguistic, Cognitive, Socio-cultural, and Instructional dimensions of L2 learning.
  • Associate faculty membership in SLAT is available to tenured or tenure-track faculty in any department or program at The University of Arizona who have expertise in areas related to second language acquisition and teaching, such as literature, literacy, or statistics, and also some degree of interest/expertise in second language acquisition and teaching.
  • Affiliate faculty membership in SLAT is available to non-tenure-track faculty at The University of Arizona who have a significant level of interest and expertise related to second language acquisition and teaching, including Linguistic, Cognitive, Socio-cultural, and Instructional dimensions of L2 learning.

Affiliate and Associate faculty members may not chair comprehensive examinations or dissertation committees.  A list of faculty in each category can be accessed by clicking on the category name above.
