Chen Named an MSU Lilly Fellow

September 6, 2022

Guo ChenGuo Chen, an associate professor in the Department of Geography, Environment and Spatial Sciences at Michigan State University, has been selected as a Lilly Fellow. The Lilly Teaching Fellows Program is intended to advance the University’s continuing efforts to support excellence in teaching and learning. The Lilly program has supported fellows to become future faculty leaders and inspired a broad range of faculty to pursue excellence in teaching. The goal is to develop academic leaders who will guide the University into the near future with regard to learning, teaching, and educational programming.

The program began in 1991 and has served as an opportunity to engage in a year-long exploration of the robust scholarship on effective practices in University teaching. Chen will use this opportunity to explore “Teaching for Difference: A Creative and Inclusive Module for Teaching/Learning” to foster creativity expressed in different ways from diverse students and faculty in a mutually supportive environment. 

Congratulations, Dr. Chen!
