About the Engaged Scholars Statewide Presidential Faculty Fellowship
Rhode Island Campus Compact and its Executive Board of college and universities 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.
