CELTS offers faculty certificate program for Loyola’s faculty to build strategies in teaching experiential learning courses. 

Faculty will begin by submitting a course syllabus on which they plan to work and enhance with experiential learning the following semester/year. Faculty will be encouraged to engage in 6 workshops; as a culminating project, faculty will share a course syllabus including the experiential learning course elements. Upon completion of the series, faculty participants will:

  • earn a faculty development certificate in experiential learning,
  • have priority eligibility for the Engaged Learning Faculty Funding,
  • be named Community-Engaged Experiential Learning Scholars
