Community Engaged Teaching Fellows Program
The Community Engaged Teaching Fellows Program is a CCE academic support initiative that guides faculty in the design and implementation of effective community-engaged teaching and learning. A select group of fellows receives a stipend and meets monthly through the academic year to discern how academic service-learning courses and community-based scholarship can support their professional teaching and research goals. Interactive sessions will assist in fine-tuning theoretical frameworks, networking with like-minded faculty and community partners, and exploring best practices for community engagement. This program is open to instructors of every rank and discipline. Applications are now being accepted for the 2018-2019 academic year cohort of fellows.

Presentations & Meetings About ASL & CEL Course Designation
Courses that have been designated as Academic Service-Learning (ASL) or Community-Engaged Learning (CEL) through the Center for Civic Engagement are now labeled as such in the BANNER online course registration system. However, in order for courses to be designated, faculty must fill out an application form. Information submitted through the application form will be reviewed by the CCE and a committee of faculty members who will provide suggestions and recommendations (if necessary) on how to ensure the course passes the designation process. If departments and/or individual faculty members would like someone to walk them through the application process, contact Barrett Brenton to set up a time to meet.
