Community Engagement Scholars and Faculty
A resource for faculty and departmental community engagement activities
The Office of Service-Learning facilitates a program in which departments can be chosen to host an undergraduate or graduate student leader who will assist with:
- Community partnerships,
- Community-based research projects,
- Service-learning courses,
- and other community-engagement efforts.
The students are compensated through the AmeriCorps program and receive bi-weekly training through the Office of Service-Learning. Hosting a CE Scholar can complement your existing service-learning program or help you establish new community engagement initiatives.
Your only responsibilities are to
- Provide a challenging and meaningful community engagement opportunity for your scholar
- Describe the type of service your scholar will perform (the Action Plan) and the level of supervision they will receive.
- Assign a faculty supervisor to design and monitor the CE scholars Action Plan.
- Recruit and select the scholar
- Provide adequate workspace for your scholar, which can be shared with others
All AmeriCorps paperwork, training, and monitoring is completed by the Office of Service-Learning.
