The Indiana Campus Compact Faculty Fellows program is a year-long learning community experience. Selected individuals will serve a one-year term as part of a cohort with other engaged scholars from Indiana Campus Compact member campuses. The program serves as a faculty professional development model to support the integration of service learning and community engagement into the three components of faculty development: teaching, research, and service.
The overall goals of the program include:
- supporting faculty in the practice of the scholarship of engagement;
- providing faculty with opportunities to collaborate with a community organization in a way that advances teaching and scholarship while addressing a significant social, economic, or environmental issue; and
- building a strong and productive social and intellectual community as a cadre of scholars.
ICC Faculty Fellows will:
- Teach: Each Fellow will teach a service learning course within the program period.
- Provide Professional Service: Each Fellow will provide direct service to a nonprofit organization during the program year to assist in addressing a particular community issue that is related to his/her academic discipline or expertise as an educator.
- Research: The Fellows will work as a cadre to develop a research or creative project to enhance and advance the field of service engagement.
