Community-Engaged Learning: Awards and Grants

As our academic year comes to a close, we want to provide opportunities to celebrate and appreciate the good work of our colleagues and partners in community engagement at Fairfield University. We are currently soliciting nominations for the Jeffrey P. von Arx S.J. Award for Faculty Excellence in Community Engagement and the Outstanding Community Partner Award. Please consider nominating your colleagues and partners for these awards. Information on the award criteria and past winners is included on the nomination forms (links above). Please submit your nominations by Monday, April 27th.

Additionally, the deadline for faculty to complete an application for the 2020-2021 Community-Engaged Learning Course Development Grants has been extended until May 15, 2020. The Faculty Institute scheduled for late May will now take place later in summer 2020 (date TBD). Faculty who would like additional information about these grants should email Andrea Canuel or Betsy Bowen to set up a virtual meeting. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for an opportunity to hear from the faculty who completed the 2019-2020 Community-Engaged Learning course development process.
