Associate Professor Angela Wiseman Selected to Join 2023-24 Class of Provost’s Faculty Fellows

Angela Wiseman, an associate professor of literacy education in the NC State College of Education, has been selected to join the 2023-24 class of Provost’s Faculty Fellows.

The Provost’s Faculty Fellows Program supports talented faculty in the exploration of academic leadership roles at the university’s highest levels and gives those interested in learning more about academic affairs administration an opportunity to hone their skills as faculty leaders by working closely with Provost’s Office staff on projects that are meaningful to them and the university. 

Wiseman will be part of the Fellows’ Global Leadership Track, working with Office of Global Engagement staff and representatives of partner institutions to address an assigned theme or issue relating to higher education leadership.

“Being selected for the Provost Faculty Fellows with an emphasis on global leadership is an amazing opportunity,” Wiseman said. “My goals are to expand my knowledge and skills in international contexts, particularly around leadership and global understanding.”

Wiseman is already the co-principal investigator on the recurring Cultural Investigations and Digital Representations for Educators (CIDRE) grant, which has allowed her to bring more than 130 North Carolina educators to countries including Finland, Sweden, the Czech Republic and Germany for an immersive and international professional development program. 

She has also partnered with several international universities, hosting events and collaborating with scholars in South Africa and Australia, and holds an appointment as a scholar of multiliteracies research at the University of Tampere in Finland. In 2015, she was awarded a research appointment at the International Youth Library in Munich and often returns to conduct research and engage with other international scholars in the field of children’s literature.

She hopes to use her experience in the Provost’s Faculty Fellows program to achieve her future goals of expanding study abroad opportunities for both pre-service and in-service teachers as well as supporting and collaborating with colleagues through international partnerships. 

“Looking forward, I envision future possibilities for exploring, amplifying and encouraging diverse perspectives and voices through leadership roles,” Wiseman said. “As an advocate for global perspectives and cultural diversity, I am interested in working with others on the departmental, college and university levels to lead, serve and collaborate.”
