CUPS is a faculty development office, under the Associate Provost for Teaching & Learning. We collaborate with other faculty development units here at UVM, and with similar civic engagement offices at other institutions. We also uniquely engage in community outreach for collaborative partnerships.

Resources & Services for Faculty

CUPS staff support faculty through individual consultation, presentations, workshops, and our Faculty Fellows for Service-Learning program. We assist with all elements of service-learning project development & design, including community partner identification. We offer grants and a Service-Learning Teaching Assistant program to support courses, scholarship about service-learning pedagogy and other community-engaged initiatives. We will also gladly work with small groups of faculty on particular areas of interest, or help departments map engagement opportunities in their curriculum. We maintain a Resource Library of up-to-date materials in the field.
