Service-Learning Faculty Learning Community

What is the Service-Learning Faculty Learning Community?

The purpose of the Service-Learning Faculty Learning Community is to support the expansion and integration of academic service-learning across campus, to continue the involvement and development of faculty who have completed the Service-Learning Fellowship, and to produce documents or other deliverables that facilitate faculty incorporation of service-learning activities and principles in their classrooms.

During the 2012-2013 academic year, members of the service-learning FLC will work on an academic paper exploring core principles for service learning and describing best practices and implementation strategies (to be presented at an academic conference and submitted to an academic journal). A copy of the paper will be provided to the FCTE, Brian Birch, the VPAA, the Volunteer and Service-Learning Center, and to the President’s Office.

When does the Service-Learning Faculty Learning Community meet?

All meetings will be held at noon. Lunch will be provided.
