Service-learning incorporates community work into the curriculum, giving students real-world learning experiences that enhance their academic learning while providing a tangible benefit for the community. Iowa State University is partnering with the Regents Institutions to offer an Engaged Faculty Institute on Service-Learning with support from Iowa Campus Compact. The in-depth institute focuses on developing community engagement skills and practices, including partnership, assessment, and reflection. You will work alongside community partners to co-create a course and/or a research project. The Engaged Faculty Institute is designed for those interested in developing a service-learning project or improving an existing project.
The Institute is open to all faculty: tenured, tenure-track, term, and staff with teaching responsibilities.
Selection criteria includes:
- Representation across campus to be inclusive of as many colleges, departments and majors as possible
- Ability to match a faculty member and their project to an agency/community partner
The Engaged Faculty Institute on Service-Learning will be held: May 22 at UNI’s campus and May 23 at ISU’s campus with an ongoing CELT-supported monthly learning community. Participants will receive $250 in professional development upon completion of the Institute.
