Faculty Awards

A range of grants, awards, and other recognitions exist to support and reward service-learning by faculty members and campus collaborators.

These include the Service-Learning Teaching Excellence Award and the Service-Learning Research Excellence Award; see those pages for awards application packets and listings of prior recipients of each award.

Additionally, the Office of Service-Learning periodically helps nominate faculty members, community partners, and programs to regional and national awards. These include the Gulf-South Summit Awards (Outstanding Contributions to Service-Learning in Higher Education by faculty members, students, community partners), generally due in October thru December; the Thomas Ehrlich civically engaged faculty award, generally due in March; and the Ernest Lynton award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty, generally due in April.

Faculty at the Professor or Associate Professor rank may also be interested in the Engaged Scholar Award, offered through the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach.

The Office of Service-Learning also collaborates on relevant campus-level recognitions such as the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification and the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
