Northern Essex Community College began the Service-Learning Faculty Fellows Program in 2014 with the goal of increasing faculty and student participation in service-learning, engaged learning, and civic engagement. This professional development program offers a stipend for faculty to participate in a semester long training to incorporate Service-Learning into their course design.
Through the program, faculty
- Discover ways to engage students in service activities that meet real needs in their communities and enhance their learning of their course objectives.
- Meet with community members and civic engagement professionals, who will share their expertise.
- Explore how to develop and sustain meaningful community partnerships.
- Share strategies to incorporate and implement service assignments and projects that encourage students to be civic-minded and engaged members of their local, national, and global communities.
