Working at CSU

Call for Applications

August 20, 2009

The Office of Service-Learning in the Institute for Learning and Teaching is pleased to announce a call for applications for the Fall 2009 Service-Learning Faculty Scholars program.

The Service-Learning Scholars Program provides CSU faculty with resources and incentives for implementing academic service-learning in undergraduate and graduate courses.

Program design

The Scholars Program offers an opportunity for a small cohort of CSU faculty to engage in dialogue about student-centered, experiential education that promotes academic learning while serving genuine community needs. The workshop series is designed to deepen understanding of service-learning and guide participants as they integrate it into their curriculum and pedagogy.

Participating faculty commit to incorporating service-learning into a new or existing course within an academic year.

Seminar details

The Fall 2009 Scholar Program will consist of a six-week, cohort-based seminar series in which participants meet once a week for a 1½ hour workshop beginning early in the Fall semester. The exact meeting dates and times will be negotiated after assessing the availability of participating instructors.

Faculty Scholars receive a modest stipend of $700 for participating in the program. Participating faculty also receive priority access to the Service-Learning Faculty Mini-Grant pool (typically ranging from $500-$1,000) for additional resource development.

A full announcement and application for the Service-Learning Faculty Scholars Program can be found online.

Applications are due by Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2009.

For questions about the program, contact Clayton Hurd, director of Service-Learning in TILT, at (970) 491-2032 or clayton.hurd@colostate.edu.
