Engaged Scholar Faculty and Community Fellows Program: Application deadline May 31

The JHU Center for Social Concern is recruiting for the 2017-18 cohort of the Engaged Scholar Faculty and Community Fellows Program. The program is a powerful initiative to train faculty and community partners in Community Based Learning (CBL) best practices.

Faculty and community partners will be paired together to co-design and co-teach a spring 2018 CBL course. Fellows must be able to attend a one-day summer training in August, a one-day winter workshop (held during the fall 2017 reading period), and one evening session a month during the academic year for cohort dinner discussions. All fellows receive a $2,000 stipend to use at their discretion.

Faculty do not need to have an existing relationship with a community based organization to apply. Applicants can propose to teach a new or modified undergraduate or graduate course offered to Homewood students. Faculty must be full-time and have an affiliation with an academic program located on the Homewood campus (divisions include the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, and the School of Education) and/or the Peabody Institute.

NOTE: For faculty teaching courses offered through schools of Nursing and Public Health (including MPH/MBA programs), there is a Service-Learning Fellows Program managed by SOURCE, the Student Outreach Resource Center, that is also accepting applications.
