SOURCE Service-Learning Fellowship Overview

The SOURCE Service-Learning Fellowship is a comprehensive program that engages faculty members each year for a one-year term as they become part of a wider community of faculty who use service-learning pedagogy. This year-long professional development opportunity equips faculty with all of the necessary tools and methods to develop critical service-learning partnerships and courses.

Through the program, Fellows integrate a service-learning component into a new or existing course with assistance from SOURCE. Throughout the program, Fellows receive training during an intensive 2.5 day virtual seminar (see details below) which kicks off the program in June, in addition to ongoing training throughout the year. Additionally, Fellows receive one-on-one consultation with SOURCE faculty on service-learning curriculum development and service-learning project development.
