Community-Engaged Teaching

Community-Engaged Teaching

Engaged Program Initiative, Course Development Grants, Community-Based Learning Teaching Assistants

Community-Engaged Teaching Community Impact proposals should outline projects that significantly advance academic community engagement through curricular initiatives connected to community-based learning (CBL) or community-based research (CBR) courses. The course learning goals should align with the Center for Social Concerns learning goals, and those goals should consider not only student learning but also community impact.

Courses may take place on the Notre Dame campus or at other domestic or international sites. Faculty in the Mendoza College of Business are eligible for the Gray Family Course Development Grant and should acknowledge that in the proposal.

Community-Engaged Teaching proposals fall into one of four categories:

Engaged Program Initiative (EPI)—supports multiple faculty and multiple engaged courses and/or engaged research projects within a department or academic unit

Course Development Grant (CDG)— (a) New Course Development Grant—supports design of a new CBL/R course or substantial redesign of an existing course to include significant community engagement consistent with the mission of the Center for Social Concerns. (b) Sustaining Course Development Grant—supports ongoing needs of an existing CBL/R course.

Community-Based Learning Teaching Assistant (CBLTA)—supports funding for a faculty-identified and supervised assistant—undergraduate or graduate student—to support CBL/R courses

Course Development Grant and Community-Based Learning Teaching Assistant

Funding may be requested in one or both of the following categories:

  1. Support for materials related to an engaged project, or
  2. Stipends for community partners/members, faculty, or teaching assistants.

We recommend applicants send a brief email letter of intent two weeks prior to the deadline to Connie Snyder Mick , Ph.D. (cmick@nd.edu) to communicate an outline of the proposal.
