The Community-Engaged Scholars Faculty Fellows Program is a cohort-based faculty fellowship program for full-time faculty instructors (NTT, tenure-track, and tenured faculty members) at Loyola University Chicago, facilitated by the Center for Engaged Learning, Teaching, & Scholarship (CELTS).

Purpose: The intent of this faculty development program is to create a community of scholars who will develop, build upon, or produce Community-Engaged Scholarship (CES), specifically through the following program goals:

  • Develop faculty capacity for community-engaged teaching, learning and scholarship
    through a community-engaged scholarly individual project (may include current
    research agenda)
  • Facilitate a supportive faculty community around community-engaged scholarship
  • Coordinate faculty peer feedback on the community-engaged scholarly project
  • Complete, disseminate, and submit the community-engaged scholarly project
    for publication

Criteria: Faculty members are nominated for this fellowship award by the Center for Engaged Learning, Teaching, & Scholarship team in summer 2019, based on the faculty member’s interest in, demonstrated commitment to, and pursuit toward community-engaged teaching, learning, and research. Once accepted, faculty members will serve as Community-Engaged Scholars (CES) Faculty Fellows for two years with the Center for Engaged Learning, Teaching, & Scholarship under the Office of the Provost. Each recipient will be awarded access to a total of $1,000.00 over a two-year period ($500 per year) for conference travel and/or supplies regarding their community-engaged scholarly project.
