Faculty Fellows Seminar

What is a Faculty Fellow?
AS-L Faculty Fellows attend a weekly development seminar where they learn the theories, implementation, and assessment of academic service-learning to integrate AS-L methodology into their courses. Seminars are offered every fall and winter semester.

How to become a Faculty Fellow
All full-time, tenure-track faculty and full-time lecturers will receive application materials. The Office of Academic Service-Learning supports release time for a group of AS-L Faculty Fellows each fall and winter semester.
