Academic Service-Learning Fellows learn the theory and practice of academic service-learning and how to integrate this methodology into their courses. Fellows receive a $1,250 stipend and curriculum resources focused on the use of service-learning as a pedagogy. Fellows meet regularly throughout the year to support each other in the process of revising a syllabus to include service-learning, teach the revised course, and conduct an action research project in which they collect data to answer a research question related to the student learning or community impacts aspects of their new course. Faculty new to service-learning as well as experienced practitioners are welcome.
The Academic Service-Learning Fellows Program is open to all faculty , tenure track and non-tenure track. Application materials are distributed in April for the cohort that begins the following September.
