Ordinarily their home institutions also provide a portion of their salaries in addition to all benefits, although this is not a requirement for the fellowship. Adjustments may be made in the cases of faculty members at non-U.S. institutions where salary scales are significantly lower than in the U.S. Stipends for independent scholars will not exceed the maximum for fellows holding appointments elsewhere.

17. BRIDGEWATER STATE UNIVERSITY, BRIDGEWATER, MA. DEAN, COLLEGE OF HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES. Bridgewater State University seeks nominations and applications for the position of Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. About the University: Founded in 1840 by Horace Mann, Daniel Webster and John Quincy Adams, Bridgewater State University is one of the oldest public institutions of higher education in the United States, and is a premiere public university of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Bridgewater today is a dynamic, vibrant community of students and scholars, with excellent facilities, an outstanding range of academic programs and a broad array of undergraduate learning experiences. The University's trajectory of excellence is fostered by intensive interactions between faculty and students; a commitment to diversity and global awareness; a heightened sense of civic responsibility and public service; and the deployment of new technologies into all forms of teaching and learning. As the comprehensive public institution in Southeastern Massachusetts-one of the fastest-growing regions in New England-Bridgewater State University is home to over 11,200 students and over 300 faculty members, making it the eighth largest institution of higher education, public or private, in the Commonwealth. The University is situated on an idyllic, 270-acre campus, and is approximately 45 minutes from Cape Cod and Boston, to which it is linked by commuter rail. The cultural and intellectual resources of the greater Boston area are world class. Bridgewater State University houses five distinct Colleges: the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Education and Allied Studies, the College of Business, the College of Science and Mathematics and the College of Graduate Studies. Forward thinking and vast energy have allowed Bridgewater to invest nearly $300 million in an unparalleled program of construction, renovation and renewal over the past decade. A new academic building that will serve as the home of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences is in the early stages of development. During the past decade the number of faculty has increased by almost 22%, more than any other public institution in Massachusetts; among the Commonwealth's ten largest institutions, public and private, none have added faculty at a faster rate. The new dean will play a key role in the continuing expansion of the faculty.Thoughtful planning preserved the pre-recession budgets of all academic departments. A wide array of energetic faculty development programs, already well supported, continues to expand and flourish. The University's Center for International Engagement has teaching, research and exchange partnerships with universities in 23 countries around the world. Of central importance is that the University comprehensively and concretely supports the belief that its students have the capacity for the extraordinary. The resulting high caliber teaching, vital undergraduate research programs and vigorous academic support programs have in turn helped our students to earn national awards and admission to top-tier graduate schools. About the position: The Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences serves as the chief academic officer of the College and reports directly to the Provost. She or he works collaboratively with talented department chairs, faculty, librarians and other deans of the University to shape and articulate the goals of the College and to promote excellence in teaching, scholarship, research, creative pursuits and service.
