We are pleased to announce the inaugural 2019-2020 Changemaker Faculty Fellows Program developed as a collaboration between the Teaching + Learning Commons and the Center for Student Involvement, with the support of the Changemaker Steering Committee. As an Ashoka U-designated Changemaker Campus, UC San Diego recognizes the value of community engaged service-learning in developing students and faculty as leaders in social innovation and changemaking.
The purpose of the Fellowship is to support faculty who integrate
community engaged service-learning (CESL) into their teaching, research,
and public service at UC San Diego, and serve as campus leaders in CESL
pedagogy and community engagement. The Changemaker Faculty Fellows
Program develops a community of faculty engaged in CESL, and funds
projects to enhance existing or develop a new CESL courses. Proposed
projects may focus on:
The program is currently open to all full-time senate UC San Diego faculty members with an interest in CESL. We encourage individual faculty and interdisciplinary teams to apply for the Fellowship. Awards are in the amount of $10,000 for one academic year to support the development and implementation of a CESL project. Funds may be used toward project implementation, or to provide additional professional development support for participants.
Applications will be accepted through May 31, 2019. Fellows will be selected and notified by June 7, 2019. Applicants should submit an application form including a project proposal and letter of support from their Chair or Dean. A detailed program overview and application link can be found at https://commons.ucsd.edu/educators/faculty-programs/index.html.
