In academia, a fellow is a member of a group of learned people who work together as peers in the pursuit of mutual knowledge or practice. Traditionally in the Oxbridge model, after election by their peers on the basis of scholarship, fellows became part of the teaching and research team, progressing to Council membership on the basis of seniority. Fellowship also involved becoming part of the residential life of the college, reinforced by formal dinners.
Essentially this model continues today with the Fellows of Jane Franklin Hall being drawn from high quality academic and professional backgrounds. Fellows contribute to the creation of a mutually supportive intellectual and social environment that encourages scholarship and personal development, and establishes university years as a time of significant individual growth. Fellows also support student integration into the University of Tasmania in Hobart for residents who may be a long way from home for the first extended period in their lives.
