For nearly ten years, Rhode Island Campus Compact has supported engaged faculty through the Presidential Engaged Scholars Faculty Fellowship program. Now, individual faculty projects and their impacts can be found profiled according to program year.
The Fellowship aims to:
- Stimulate and recognize scholarly activities on campus and in the community in the areas of community and civic engagement.
- Create a network of engaged faculty between the member campuses of Rhode Island Campus Compact.
- Foster the advancement of civic and community engagement for a healthy, just, and democratic society through rigorous student learning and community-campus partnerships.
Fellowship projects range from the design and development of service-learning courses to community-based research to the construction of community partnerships. Faculty from all 11 higher education institutions in Rhode Island take part each year and receive a stipend award, presidential recognition, and the opportunity to learn from fellow engaged scholars from across the state.
Housed within the Faculty Fellows page, members can now find detailed project and fellow information for the past eight years of engaged scholars. Explore project descriptions, evidence of impact, and a composite picture of nearly ten years of engaged scholarship through the Rhode Island Campus Compact Presidential Faculty Fellowship.
