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 2021–22 academic year cohort of fellows.
