The Service-Learning Fellows Program is a year-long faculty development program that provides an opportunity for selected faculty members to learn best practices in service-learning and community engagement, and to integrate service-learning into their teaching, research, and public service work while becoming recognized campus leaders in service-learning pedagogy and community engagement. Since 2006, nearly 150 faculty members have participated in the Service-Learning Fellows program, representing 16 schools and colleges, 3 public service and outreach units, the Provost’s Office, and the Medical Partnership.
The program includes a $2500 fellowship award. A cohort is selected for each academic year in a competitive review process; applications for 2021-22 are due April 30.
The Service-Learning Fellows Program is open to UGA faculty members with an interest in service-learning in any career track, including academic tenure track, academic professionals, public service faculty, lecturers, medical school, and clinical faculty members. Previous experience in service-learning pedagogy or familiarity with service-learning or civic engagement research is not required. See the PDF below, or the listing of past Fellows for examples of the sorts of projects undertaken.
