Faculty Fellows Program

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.

  • Award amounts are $3,750.00.  Institutions are required to cash match at least $1,250.00.
