Deadline extended for VT Engage Faculty Fellows program

From: VT Engage

The VT Engage team has extended the deadline to apply for its Faculty Fellows program to May 15. More information can be found below and on the VT Engage website

The goal of VT Engage's Faculty Fellows program is to increase the prevalence of and quality of community engagement in the curriculum at Virginia Tech through curricular, faculty-led experiences in the areas of service-learning, leadership education, and civic engagement.

Selected Fellows will join other scholar-educators dedicated to integrating high-impact, ethical community-based learning experiences in their courses and programs. Fellows will receive financial resources and technical support from VT Engage during the one-year program (June 2020 - June 2021.)

As many programs and colleges align undergraduate and graduate curricula to Destination Areas, Strategic Growth Areas, Pathways to General Education, and the VT-Shaped student model, there are many opportunities to leverage community engagement as a high impact pedagogy.

Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 15. This program is open to any full-time teaching or administrative and professional faculty member at Virginia Tech. 

Questions about the program or the application process can be directed to Catherine Cotrupi, assistant director for campus and community engagement, at cotrupi@vt.edu or 540-231-9186.
