Byron Fellowship is an interdisciplinary course in leadership and sustainable community development that uniquely engages participants through place-based learning.
- Indiana Byron Fellowship, May 26-31 2014, Turkey Run State Park, Parke County, Indiana
- North Carolina Byron Fellowship, Aug 3-8 2014, Warren Wilson College, Asheville, North Carolina
Applications completed on or before March 29th are guaranteed to be reviewed. Our process favors early applications. Each Byron Fellowship program is available to 20 upper class undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates from throughout the world by application. With the addition of the North Carolina program this year, there is now room for 40 Fellows per year between the two programs.
Prospective Fellows are evaluated based on their demonstrated academic, civic, and professional leadership. Strong attention is paid toward crafting every Fellowship with diversity capable of supporting a holistic exploration of sustainability.
Community Engagement in the On-line Classroom
Program Manager of Service-Learning at University of Southern Maine and former Program Director at Maine Campus Compact, Craig DeForest, will share insights and current practices in online service-learning based on his work with the Fusion Project, Maine Campus Compact's Online Faculty Learning Community.
The session will include a virtual panel of faculty who have included service-learning in their online classes. Attendees can expect to leave with greater clarity on how community engagement can work in the online classroom and a list of resources, course examples, and contacts to support development of their own online service-learning courses.
Meet 2014 Richard J. Wood Student Community Commitment Award winner Peter Keon Woo.
Join Peter at the 2014 Service Engagement Summit where he will talk about his journey from volunteer to social entrepreneur. In this interactive session, students will hear about resources from Indiana Campus Compact and brainstorm ways to implement their ideas when they get back to their own campus.
