The Office of Engagement Initiatives (OEI) is accepting applications through May 30 for the 2020-21 Engaged Faculty Fellowship Program.
This yearlong program has two cohorts:
- Faculty Fellows in Engaged Learning work on developing a syllabus for a community-engaged learning course;
- Faculty Fellows in Engaged Scholarship focus on publishing their community-engaged work.
In both cohorts, which are open to full-time faculty and academic staff, fellows join a small, dynamic group of academics committed to working in, with and for communities. They meet monthly to share projects and troubleshoot challenges, and contribute to a network of publicly engaged academics.
“This program gives faculty an opportunity to dive deep into community-engaged learning and scholarship, reflecting what it means for their own courses and research and for higher education more broadly,” said Anna Sims Bartel, associate director for community-engaged curricula and practice in OEI.
“The readings and monthly meetings provide frameworks, techniques and resources that fellows can apply immediately,” Bartel said. “But the real benefit of the program is that faculty become part of a powerful network of skilled academics working with communities – and each other – for the public good.”
All fellows receive a $2,000 stipend for the year. Learn more on the Engaged Cornell website.
