Faculty Fellows

As faculty emerge as leaders in community engagement, the Center for Social Concerns occasionally invites them to become Faculty Fellows. In general, the role of the Faculty Fellows is to link their disciplinary or multidisciplinary expertise with the Center's mission. To this end, they collaborate with Center faculty and staff in research, teaching, and advisory capacities across university departments and programs.
