Faculty Fellow Requirements

Fellow activities may take the form of the following, among others: collaborate with Center faculty and staff in research, teaching and advisory capacities, meet to sketch, then delineate collaborations with the Center, such as presenting at Center events or in Center courses, or planning research projects that involve students, faculty, and/or community organizations, such as the Social Impact Studio, including potential funding. Center for Social Concerns Faculty Fellows will participate in the mission of the Center through consultation, teaching, and research, any and all of which are designed to advance community impact, including their own scholarly agendas.

Fellows are paired with a Center steward to work jointly on the chosen projects. They are chosen for two-year periods, with renewal possible.

In addition to the above, the Fellows will be asked to: meet a minimum of once yearly with relevant Center faculty and fellows for the purposes of offering advice on Center activities typically related to the Faculty and information sharing; and attend occasional events (staff meetings, Community-Engagement Faculty Institute, Engaged Learning Forums, etc.) at the Center. At the end of each year, each Fellow, in collaboration with the Center steward with whom he or she has been working, is asked to write up a description (one to two pages) of his or her efforts over the year and results.

Some fellows are selected through the Community Impact Grant process and maybe awarded funds for their research, teaching, or learning proposal. Other fellows are selected through deliberation by Center faculty and the Center Leadership Team.
