Past Faculty Fellows

Since 2008, the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) has been organizing a fellows program for faculty members seeking to transform or create a course with an integrated community-based learning (CBL) component.

Fellows receive stipends to attend CBL workshops, work on their CBL courses over the summer, and participate in a CBL faculty-learning community during the academic year. In addition, faculty receive ongoing pedagogical support from the CCE as they work with their students and community partners.

*Congratulations to our former Faculty Fellows who have been honored with the University's Distinguished Educator Award, as marked below.
