The Service-Learning Faculty Fellows program provides support for TU faculty interested in creating a new service-learning course or incorporating a new, significant service learning component into an existing course.
All TU faculty members in any discipline are eligible to apply. Selected Faculty Fellows will be awarded a $1,000 stipend. Service-Learning Faculty Fellows meet on a monthly basis to develop and then implement service-learning courses.
The Service-Learning Faculty Fellows program is accepting faculty who are new to, or have some experience in, service-learning and would like to learn how to incorporate service-learning into a new or existing course. Faculty who are new to service-learning will have an opportunity to learn from more experienced faculty as well as others in the Faculty Fellows cohort. No experience in teaching or creating a service-learning course is needed to apply.
Interested faculty members are expected to propose a service-learning initiative that includes a case for the significance and expected impact of the project in a broader context of civic engagement and social responsibility. Applications will be evaluated on how the service-learning project seeks to advance course objectives, includes meaningful student interaction with the community and addresses real community needs. Application guidelines are below.
The Office of Civic Engagement and Leadership is now accepting proposals for the 2014-2015 Service-Learning Faculty Fellows program. The proposal deadline has been extended to June 7, 2014. Please direct questions or concerns to Dr. Chris Jensen email@example.com or Mesha Byrd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
