Carla Vecchiola

Director,

Carla Vecchiola is responsible for organizing faculty enrichment sessions, managing teaching grants, and supporting Academic Service-Learning. Her work in the Hub is guided by the commitment to co-create programs and services with faculty rather than for faculty so that the Hub is meaningfully connected to faculty needs. Carla works to ensure that the Hub serves as a network through which faculty can share their strong teaching practices in order to better serve Dearborn’s student population which is 43% Pell Grant eligible, 38% first generation, and 44% of whom have care-giving responsibilities. Carla earned her doctorate from the University of Michigan’s Program in American Culture; her doctoral research, an ethnography of Detroit electronic musicians, focused on cities and communities. She is also a LEO Lecturer IV in History teaching two classes a year.
