Launched in 2019 the ISSOTL Fellows program rests on a set of core values which include community engagement and global citizenship, collaboration as a fundamental process in building capacities for new ways of thinking, doing, and learning, and holistic, meaningful, intentional approaches to higher education. These nine fellows are at the vanguard of the ISSOTL Fellows program, which seeks to build communities and ecosystems animated by a generosity of spirit that animates all our endeavours, including mentorship, leadership, and a commitment to support established and emerging learners and scholars in the pursuit of knowledge creation and sharing.

On behalf of the ISSOTL Board, the adjudicators, reviewers, and ISSOTL Fellows Advisory Committee, we want to say congratulations and welcome to the ISSOTL Fellowship!
