Academic Service-Learning Faculty Fellow Seminar
Applications for the Winter 2022 Academic Service-Learning Faculty Fellow Seminar are now open! These applications are due by November 23, 2021. Find more information and the application here. Applicants will be notified of the results of their application in early December.
The seminar's intention is to expose, engage and inform faculty on the study, research and application of integrating service and/or community-based learning into courses, curriculum, scholarly and/or creative activity. For many faculty members, the seminar becomes both a point of access to practicing experiential pedagogy and to the value and impact of collaborating with the community.
The seminar provides a one-course release (for the Winter semester)and requires faculty to participate in a regularly scheduled seminar. This time and day will be coordinated based on accepted faculty schedules.
Feel free to email [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns regarding the application or the seminar
