Eastern Washington University (EWU) is committed to developing opportunities for students that are transformative and cultivate “professionally, socially and culturally engaged leaders, citizens and communities.” Service-learning and engaged scholarship support this mission by providing students transformative educational experiences while also meeting critical community need.
The EWU Engaged Faculty Scholars Program provides selected faculty members the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the benefits and best practices associated with service-learning pedagogy and the scholarship of engagement. Participating faculty develop a community of scholarship that shares knowledge, encourages innovation, and provides mentorship and advocacy for service-learning and community engagement on our campus. Our Scholars will present their research/projects at the 2016 S.M.A3.R.T. Symposium (a new faculty-focused part of the Student Research and Creative Works Symposium).
The EWU Engaged Faculty Scholars program is comprised of five faculty scholars from across EWU’s colleges and Libraries. Scholars are selected on an annual basis through a nomination process and final selection by the Community Engagement Advisory Board and approval from their respective dean. Engaged Scholars commit to a 2-year term that includes service as an active scholar in the first year and as a mentor in the second year.
Applications will go live in February and scholars are selected in April of every year. Check back in February for the application.
