The Office of Civic and Community Engagement is proud to announce our inaugural class of Engaged Faculty Fellows. The Engaged Faculty Fellows program is designed to incentivize the development of academic service-learning courses by awarding $2,500 summer stipends to five faculty members. Each fellow commits to creating a course that incorporates a significant component of civic engagement and service learning into the course curriculum. Recipients of the awards must commit to teaching the class at least three times over the next five years.
The 2012-2013 Engaged Faculty Fellows include:
Dr. Joseph De Santis, Assistant Professor, School of Nursing and Health Studies
Dr. Scotney Evans, Assistant Professor, Department of Education and Psychological Studies, School of Education
Dr. Laura Kohn-Wood, Associate Chair and Associate Professor, Department of Education and Psychological Studies, School of Education
Dr. Michelle Maldonado, Associate Professor, Department of Religious Studies, College of Arts and Sciences
Dr. Subha Xavier, Assistant Professor of French, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, College of Arts and Sciences
These faculty members were chosen from an extremely engaged pool of candidates that proposed a diverse array of courses. Congratulations to the 2012-2013 Engaged Faculty Fellows!
