Faculty Engagement


As teachers and scholars, faculty at the University of Richmond have engaged with communities in Richmond, across the United States, and abroad in creative and impactful ways. At the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE), we seek to support this commitment to community engagement, facilitate the sharing of resources and expertise when needed, and help faculty align their engagement with their pedagogical and scholarly or creative aspirations.

The CCE’s Faculty engagement team supports and encourages faculty in several ways. Faculty fellowships are awarded to those seeking to learn more about community-engaged learning pedagogy and/or to explore a  particular issue area or initiative. Course support grants encourage community-engaged classes by funding honoraria for guest speakers, transportation costs, and more. Conference funding is available for faculty interested in presenting work or attending conferences related to community-engaged research or community-based learning. Faculty excursions and events provide shared learning and networking opportunities. Community-engaged research engages faculty expertise with the expertise of community stakeholders in order to co-create new knowledge that serves a public good extending beyond the academic purpose of the work. 

We know that every great community-engaged course and research project begins with a conversation, so visit us on the third floor of Tyler Haynes Commons, where we have coffee – and a library of resources.
