Faculty Scholars Program

This program identifies and recognizes faculty who are interested in incorporating or enhancing Service-Learning in their courses and seek to better understand the pedagogy. Faculty members apply for the program by identifying a particular course that they would like to revise to include a Service-Learning component.

Six (6) faculty members are selected for the program each year. These faculty attend a series of seminars during fall semester in which they learn about and discuss issues related to Service-Learning pedagogy. By the end of fall semester, each faculty member has constructed a course syllabus that includes the integration of a Service-Learning project. (or the next semester in which the course is offered). This course will have a class cap of 25 students. The faculty member makes a commitment to teach the newly designed course in spring semester. Also, faculty who complete the program will be asked to serve as mentors for the next year's in-coming Service-Learning Faculty Scholars.

Faculty selected for the program will receive a $1,000 stipend. Although the program seeks proposals for courses and faculty that have not previously incorporated Service-Learning, limited slots are available for more experienced Service-Learning faculty and the enhancement of courses that have previously included Service-Learning. Application deadline is during the spring semester.
