Faculty Fellow Requirements

Fellow activities may take the form of the following, among others: creating a new project, or further developing an ongoing one, in a department or college, that involves students, faculty, and/or community organizations in community-based learning (CBL) endeavors, community-based scholarship, or coalition building, offering workshops or developing conferences in the Fellow's college or department or for a broader audience, on CBL or other subjects related to the Center's mission, assisting to develop, presenting in, and/or teaching preparatory or follow-up courses for, or advising or reflecting with students in, Center Programs, such as the Summer Service Learning Program and the Urban Plunge, working in the South Bend area, in locations across the U.S., or in developing countries in ways that foster the educational interests of the Center; and conducting research relevant to the mission of the Center.

Fellows are paired with a program director 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 twice yearly with relevant Center staff for the purposes of offering advice on Center activities typically related to the Faculty and information sharing; participate in post-Urban Plunge, International Summer Service Learning Program and domestic Summer Service Learning Program student reflections; and attend occasional events (staff meetings, dinners, etc.) at the Center. At the end of each year, each Fellow, in collaboration with the Center affiliate 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.

To enhance the Fellow's community-based research and/or teaching consistent with the mission of the Center, $2,500 will be transferred to the Fellow's research account for use over the period of the appointment. Likely uses of this money would be hiring student assistants, lunch meetings, books and other supplies, and conference attendance. The Fellows are selected through deliberation by Center faculty.
