The Faculty Fellows Program is a faculty designation that provides recognition of and a pathway for faculty leadership at the college through various peer-to-peer professional development programs. Currently, Faculty Fellows can earn credentials through the Faculty Innovation Center, the WAC/WID Program, the Service-Learning Professional Development Program, and now through the Faculty Development Program for Inclusive Excellence. Once credentialed, faculty are eligible to serve as peer mentors. Faculty earning program credentials will also earn professional development credit for the purposes of continuing education, continuing contract and promotion. Faculty Fellows are further eligible to earn a stipend or course release when they work as a peer mentor in the Faculty Fellows Program. All faculty interested in applying to serve as a Faculty Fellow must first get their application approved by their department chair before submitting.
The Faculty Innovation Center is part of the Division of Online Studies. The mission of Online Studies is to ensure a high-quality online environment for faculty and student success. Faculty Fellows in Innovation will commit three hours per week to working in the Faculty Innovation Center creating teaching resources for the online environment. This work will then be presented to peers during the subsequent major semester.

Daytona State College has been awarded with a Title III - Strengthening Institutions Program Grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The grant will support a new project called "Learner Engagement, Navigation, and Support (LENS)", which will enable the College to increase retention and graduation rates of first-time-in-college (FTIC) students in associate degree programs. LENS is designed as a single project comprised of three strategies. One of the three strategies is focused on enriching the college environment to heighten cultural inclusion and community connection among students. The Faculty Fellows in Inclusive Excellence (IE) will serve an integral role for this strategy by assisting with the development and delivery of training programs designed to promote institutional practices that create an environment that welcomes and promotes success for all students. Two Faculty Fellows in IE worked during summer and fall of 2020 to finalize the training curriculum which has and will continue to be delivered to faculty and staff by Faculty Fellows in IE.
