About the Engaged Scholars Statewide Presidential Faculty Fellowship
Rhode Island Campus Compact and its Executive Board of college and university presidents announce a unique opportunity for faculty to integrate engaged scholarship and community-based learning into all aspects of their professional lives - teaching, research, and service. The goals of this program are to stimulate and recognize scholarly activities on campus and in the community in the areas of community and civic engagement; create a network of engaged faculty between the member campuses of Rhode Island Campus Compact; and foster the advancement of civic and community engagement for a healthy, just, and democratic society through rigorous student learning and community-campus partnerships.
Take advantage of the rich resources available through Campus Compact. The publications are relevant and practical, and local and national leaders are available for conversations, consulting and workshops.
The experience with RICC has been wonderfully eye opening. I have not only developed partnerships within my community, but feel that I have developed wonderful partnerships with those who were my fellow engaged scholars.
Engaged learning means that students immerse themselves, not just in a world of ideas, but in a world of action, collaboration, construction and ultimately, meaning.
