Each semester, our office selects several faculty to work with our cohort of Community Engagement Scholars.
The Scholars are trained student leaders who assist faculty teaching academic service-learning courses or departments with growing community partnerships, community-based research projects, or other community-engagement efforts. Scholars receive training from the Office of Service-Learning and Volunteer Programs, as well as a stipend and the opportunity to participate in professional development workshops.
Each week, Community Engagement Scholars spend approximately 5-8 hours coordinating service-learning programs and services.
New CE Scholars and Faculty Partners are selected each semester. Interested faculty should apply to our office first. For the application and/or assistance with creating a plan of action for your course or department, please contact Jodi Roth-Saks
Once they are selected for the program, individual faculty and departments are responsible for assisting with recruiting and selecting a student.
We are currently in the process of selecting scholars for the spring 2017 semester.
