Faculty Fellows Program

The Indiana Campus Compact Faculty Fellows program is a year-long learning community experience designed in the tenets of Boyer’s (1996) vision of the scholarship of engagement. Selected individuals will serve a one-year term as part of a cohort with other engaged scholars from Indiana Campus Compact partner campuses. Each year, the cadre of selected scholars will work collaboratively on a scholarly project that will seek to advance the understanding and practice of community engagement through the collaborative engagement research paradigm (Jacquez, Ward, & Goguen, 2016), while individually incorporating community engagement into the three components of faculty work: teaching, research, and service.
