The Engaged Scholar Faculty and Community Partner Fellows Program, a cohort-based program housed at the Center for Social Concern, facilitates the development and implementation of mutually beneficial community-based learning, or CBL, courses. JHU faculty work with leaders from Baltimore City–based community partners to co-develop and co-teach a CBL course in the spring 2024 semester. Community-based learning is a high-impact pedagogy that connects faculty and community partners as co-educators for the purpose of prompting students to critically think about social and civic issues, while simultaneously meeting identified goals of community partners. Engaged Scholar Faculty Fellows receive a $2,000 stipend and up to $1,000 in additional funding for CBL course logistics, as well as training, resources, and support from the Center for Social Concern. Engaged Scholar Community Partner Fellows also receive a $2,000 co-education stipend.
Applications for the 2023-24 cohort are due Friday, March 10. Faculty applicants will be contacted shortly after submitting their application with next steps. Faculty applicants do not need to have a community partner co-educator identified by the time that their application is submitted. The Center for Social Concern can help introduce faculty fellows to potential Baltimore City–based community partner co-educators.
Contact Luisa De Guzman, assistant director of Engaged Scholarship at the Center for Social Concern, at Ldeguzm1@jhu.edu with any questions.
