Lillian Brown earns faculty fellowship from ACM

Assistant Professor of Theatre Lillian Brown has received a Mellon Faculty Fellowship from Associated Colleges of the Midwest.

At the post-graduate level, Mellon Faculty Fellowships offer tenure-track appointments at an ACM college to new Ph.D. or terminal master’s degree graduates whose backgrounds and life experiences will enhance diversity on the ACM campuses.

There will be 33 faculty fellow appointments in the humanities, humanistic social sciences, or the arts over the nine years of the grant. The Mellon Faculty Fellowships aim to enhance the diversity of new faculty who teach at liberal arts colleges while also enhancing the careers of the fellows and teaching programs of the colleges.

Brown joined Ripon College in August 2021 as a visiting professor of theater. Previously, she was a graduate teaching associate at Ohio State University. She also worked at Cleveland Public Theatre as an educator in its CMHA CAN program which inspired art in underserved communities.

Originally from Las Vegas, Nevada, she received a bachelor’s degree in theatre (acting) from the University of Northern Colorado and an MFA in theatre (creation of new work) from Ohio State University. She is an actor, director and solo performing artist.
