The Service-Learning Faculty Fellows program provides support for TU faculty interested in creating a new service-learning course or incorporating a new, significant service learning component into an existing course.
All TU faculty members in any discipline are eligible to apply. Selected Faculty Fellows will be awarded a $1,000 stipend. Service-Learning Faculty Fellows meet on a monthly basis to develop and then implement service-learning courses.
The Service-Learning Faculty Fellows program is accepting faculty who are new to, or have some experience in, service-learning and would like to learn how to incorporate service-learning into a new or existing course. Faculty who are new to service-learning will have an opportunity to learn from more experienced faculty as well as others in the Faculty Fellows cohort. No experience in teaching or creating a service-learning course is needed to apply.
Interested faculty members are expected to propose a service-learning initiative that includes a case for the significance and expected impact of the project in a broader context of civic engagement and social responsibility. Applications will be evaluated on how the service-learning project seeks to advance course objectives, includes meaningful student interaction with the community and addresses real community needs. Application guidelines are below.
The Office of Civic Engagement & Leadership has selected the 2014-2015 Service-Learning Faculty Fellows. Please direct questions to Dr. Christopher Jensen firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals for 2015-2016 will be available April 2015.
