Center Faculty Roles

CHURCH AND SOCIAL ACTION: URBAN PLUNGE
Faculty members lead one-time debriefings with students in January or February after their 2–3 day immersion in an urban area over the winter break on the Urban Plunge seminar.

SOCIAL CONCERNS SEMINARS
Colleagues on the faculty provide readings and in other ways help with preparation and follow-up for students' spring, fall, or winter break immersion/service Social Concerns Seminars. These courses take them to domestic locations including Appalachia, New York, and Washington, D.C.

We are particularly interested at this time in identifying faculty members who would be interested in working closely enough with a seminar to list the course in their departments.

SUMMER SERVICE LEARNING PROGRAM (SSLP)
Three debriefing sessions are led by faculty members each year with students who have volunteered during the summer in a U.S. city as part of the SSLP three-credit course.

INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SERVICE LEARNING PROGRAM (ISSLP)
Through presentations and one-on-one or small group meetings, Faculty colleagues help students prepare to work in developing countries during the summer through our ISSLP. Individuals who can provide country analyses are especially needed. The program takes students to about 12 different countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

ADVISORY ROLES
Colleagues from the faculty help select the Ganey Award winners and Mini-Grant recipients, and offer us advice in a number of areas of our work, including research.

FACULTY FELLOWS
Faculty with significant, unique community engagement projects may be invited to become one of the Center's Faculty Fellows.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT FACULTY INSTITUTE
Those who wish to deepen their understanding of community-based teaching, research, and scholarship may apply for the Community Engagement Faculty Institute for three days of intensive lectures, discussions, and site visits to that will expand your portfolio of academic community engagement.

CIVIC ENGAGEMENT
Is one of the aims of your teaching to foster in your students a greater sense of civic responsibility or citizenship?
Are you interested personally in addressing a local problem as part of a coalition of community organizations, the city, churches, schools, and/or other local actors? If so, please contact Dr. Connie Snyder Mick to get stared.
