Engaged Faculty Scholars Call for Applications

Deadline: May 17

Program Goals

Each Scholar is expected to work toward these two goals. At the end of the program year each Scholar will share resources and materials with North Carolina Campus Compact to assist others in the network.

Goal One: Promote and deepen the scholarship of engagement at scholar's own institution

Allowable project focus areas:

  • Develop or enhance an academic service-learning course component.  The service-learning must be a new integration or for a new class.
  • Conduct a community-based applied or participatory research project.
  • Form a new community-campus partnership or expand a current partnership. We are especially interested in ideas that build or increase the depth of the partnership.
  • Design and implement a plan to enhance public scholarship as a legitimate and rigorous form of scholarly work on campus.
  • Promote the use of service-learning as a teaching pedagogy by facilitating professional development.
  • Create or build upon civic engagement initiatives on campus.
  • Conduct research on the impact of service-learning/community engagement/public scholarship on participants (students, faculty, community partners).

Goal Two: Assist in building the infrastructure for faculty engagement on another NC Campus Compact member institution

Application Process

Step One: Complete the online application. Download a copy of the questions to assist in preparing your answers. Please note the character limits.

Step Two: Send the required support letter and any additional letters to nccc@elon.edu.  All applicants must include a letter of support from their academic dean, specifically addressing how the project supports the goals of the school or department and whether any match can be provided. Up to two additional letters of support from students, community partners, faculty members, or administrators, are optional. Letters should not exceed two pages.
