Each college has a community of Fellows, members of the University drawn from different departments and schools, as well as Associate Fellows, usually members of the larger community, who engage in college life. When the faculty fellowship program is functioning most effectively, faculty members create a visible presence in the residential college through living in the college (in apartments for faculty fellows), eating meals in the residential college, advising students, helping the college Heads and Deans identify potential resources and contacts for undergraduates, and serving on college committees  to select students for college-­sponsored fellowships or to conduct mock interviews of students preparing for interviews with the national fellowship selection committees.
