Community Fellows

Community Fellows Program

Community Fellows are professionals in the local community with a strong history of making a positive social impact. Through their expertise, they enhance research and teaching at the University by connecting community and campus on a variety of social concerns. 

Community Fellows play a variety of roles within the Center for Social Concerns in collaboration with the Community-Engaged Learning Program Director, Dave Lassen, Ph.D. Each Fellow will identify a project that they will complete during their tenure with the center. Fellows can also participate in one or more activities that enhance the life and work of the center, such as: consult on community-engaged courses, teach a Social Concerns Seminar, or collaborate with faculty on community-engaged research initiatives. They are invited to provide their unique perspective throughout center programming, including meeting with the Faculty Fellows and the Community-Engaged Learning Coordinators, as well as assessing Community Impact Grants. Fellows will present on their project and overall work in the local community during an Engaged Learning Forum (ELF) near the end of their tenure with the center.
