What is Maverick Advantage Faculty Engagement?

Maverick Advantage Faculty Engagement (MAFE) allows students to obtain Maverick Advantage experiences within their academic coursework. Its purpose is to engage and educate faculty on understanding the Maverick Advantage and the benefits to students. Through this program, faculty transform their students’ learning and skills by identifying and incorporating Maverick Advantage activities into their courses so students receive guided, experiential learning throughout their UTA journey. All faculty must follow the MAFE procedures to have their class designated as a Maverick Advantage course.

You’re probably already doing this in some form, and MAFE is here to help.

A MAFE Course:

  • Includes transformative elements related to the Maverick Advantage
  • Contains structured reflection
  • Clearly identifies the Maverick Advantage activity
  • Is officially designated through the MAFE program

How do I learn more and get involved?

  • Attend MAFE programs, seminars, and workshops
  • Incorporate a distinguishing activity into your course using MAFE guidelines
  • Follow the MAFE approval process to designate your course
  • Apply to be a Faculty Fellow
