The CCE is looking for a Curriculum Development Faculty Fellow to facilitate a curriculum development workshop series during the Spring, 2020 semester.

With values and campus priorities emerging from Imagine Beach 2030, the CCE is positioned to continue advancing the public good, upholding social justice and equity, and empowering students for success. As a part of these efforts, a CCE-UROP faculty-led team will be working to pilot a General Education Community Engagement concentration; a CCE Data Fellows project on the impact of community engagement will be initiated; and several faculty plan to incorporate Service Learning and/or other types of community-based learning/ research through externally funded projects.

What is Service-Learning?
Service learning is a method of teaching that combines classroom instruction with meaningful community service, giving students real-world learning experiences that enhance their academic learning while providing a tangible benefit for the community. This form of learning emphasizes critical thinking and personal reflection while encouraging a heightened sense of community, civic engagement, and personal responsibility.
