Broad Integrative Fellows

The Broad Integrative Fellows (BIF) Program was developed to increase the integrative thinking and inter-disciplinary teaching among Broad College Faculty with the long-term objective of enhancing the College’s teaching and learning culture. Each year, a team of high-performing faculty are selected to participate in the BIF Program as Fellows. The Fellows work closely with a Corporate Partner to study a cross-functional, strategic-level business challenge. From this engagement, the Fellows develop an integrative teaching case focused on the Corporate Partner that can be used in Broad College courses and that may be published and made available to universities beyond MSU. In addition to developing the Broad College Cases, the BIF Program host a series of workshops for faculty and graduate students in the Broad College and across MSU focused on improving student engagement and learning as well as teaching effectiveness. For more information on the BIF Program, please contact the Co-Directors, Judith Whipple ( or Jeff Beck (
