Community Fellows

The SOURCE Community Fellows program is an extension of the Service-Learning Academy which engages faculty in a year-long program that trains and supports them to integrate service learning into their academic courses.

The Community Fellows program occurs alongside the Faculty program so that partnered CBOs can understand service-learning pedagogy while finding practical ways to engage with JHU faculty and courses. Inclusion of the community in these programs enhances our ability to collaborate effectively with a philosophy rooted in respect and reciprocity.

Program Goals

  • Assist faculty as they create new or transform existing courses to incorporate service-learning
  • Create and expand the network of faculty who engage in service-learning pedagogy and research
  • Increase the number of experiential learning courses for students in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health. Some of these Bloomberg School courses may also fulfill CEPH practicum requirements.
  • Strengthen the connection between the Johns Hopkins University health professional schools and SOURCE community partners in Baltimore City
  • Ultimately, contribute to improving the health of Baltimore residents
