Call for Proposals: Community-Engaged Learning Course Development Grants

Dear Faculty,

The Center for Social Impact’s Community-Engaged Learning Program is now accepting applications for the 2022-2023 Community-Engaged Learning Course Development Grants.

Community-engaged learning (CEL) is an experiential approach to teaching and learning. Through CEL, students have the opportunity to enhance their learning and contribute to positive social impact by working alongside community partners on projects and activities that connect with credit-bearing academic experiences. For faculty who are interested in developing a new CEL course or revising an existing course to include CEL, we offer our Course Development and Co-Mentoring Program Grants. These grants and the resulting Co-Mentoring Program have been in existence for 15 years and have led to the development of over 70 community-engaged learning courses.  We continue to offer this grant opportunity as our primary pathway for developing sustainable community-engaged learning courses as well as a strong community of scholar-practitioners.  Each award is $2,750.

For those interested in learning more about Community-Engaged Learning and the course development process, there will be an INFO SESSION on Wednesday, February 9th, from 12:30-1:30pm via Zoom. Please RSVP/Register HERE to receive the Zoom link. If you are not able to join the Zoom meeting, please contact us to set up a time to meet one-on-one.

The application for the grant can be downloaded here. Proposals are due on March 25, 2022. Faculty should submit completed proposals to
