The UA Center for Ethics & Social Responsibility is currently accepting applications for the 2015-2016 Faculty Fellows in Service Learning Program.

The program provides a venue for faculty to design a new course or modify an existing course to include a service-learning component.  The Fellows program is structured around a year-long series of meetings (six total) designed to help faculty develop a strong background in service learning pedagogy by exploring theories, implementation, and assessment of academic service learning

Eligibility and Selection Process:

The Faculty Fellows in Service Learning program is open to all faculty involved in undergraduate teaching (tenured and tenure-track faculty, professional and administrative educational staff, and adjunct/lecturer instructors) from any department on campus. Priority will be given to undergraduate courses taught by faculty members who are new or only marginally experienced with the pedagogy of service learning. Applicants must also have approval from department chairs and college deans. Each year ten faculty members are selected for the Faculty Fellows in Service Learning Program.

Application Process

To apply, interested faculty members must fill out a short application and submit all supporting documents by 4:30 p.m. on May 29, 2015. Applications must also be accompanied by an agreement with the signatures of the faculty member’s department chair and college dean.
