Engaged Scholars Program
The Engaged Scholars Program aims to bring together faculty with a shared interest in service-learning (SL) and community-based research (CBR) to build a community of practitioners that collaborate and support each other in the development of engaged public scholarship.
The program is designed for faculty interested in SL or CBR and in transforming community-based pedagogy into scholarship. The goals of the program are to help faculty:
- incorporate service-learning or community-based research into a course
- turn service-learning into scholarship
- create publishable scholarship from community-based research
- develop a collaborative community of faculty involved in community-based scholarship
This program will allow faculty structured time to work on SL or CBR, collaboration with other faculty using SL or CBR, a finished product that can serve to convert pedagogy into scholarship, and a modest stipend to use for SL/CBR related activities.
The program matches less experienced faculty with an experienced faculty member. With the support and guidance of the experienced faculty member who has successfully implemented SL or CBR, participants will go from conceptualization to implementation of a SL or CBR project.
