Faculty Development Opportunities

    Tools for supporting the "learning" in service-learning

Faculty Fellows for Service-Learning - RETURNING FOR SPRING 2015!

Since 1999, UVM has supported faculty to develop community-engaged courses through the Faculty Fellows program. In the past few years, this has involved a training with Vermont Campus Compact. This winter & spring, the semester-long, cohort-based Faculty Fellows for Service-Learning program returns to UVM hosted by CUPS with support from the Provost's Office. Faculty apply by November 21, 2014 and are notified in early December.

A one-day workshop in January, luncheons in February-April and a final one-day workshop in May comprise the fellows training. A follow-up meeting will be held the following fall, as faculty implement courses. Faculty completing the full training will receive funding towards their service-learning activities.
