Community Engaged Learning Faculty Fellows

This program aims to support individuals who recognize the value of student learning experiences outside the classroom that address issues of public concern and are eager to incorporate community-framed problems and questions into existing courses and new curricular experiences.

Public Scholarship Faculty Fellows

This program aims to support individuals developing or continuing new publicly engaged research or scholarship, including: developing relationships with community partners, identifying ways to integrate scholarship with policy, applying for extramural funding, and writing or presenting on their research for broad audiences.

Public Impact Research Initiative 

This program was established to recognize and support research that is cogenerated with community partners, is of mutual benefit, and has a positive public impact. Through PIRI, we provide financial support for new collaborations and sustained relationships that will support publicly engaged research with non-university partners.
