Service-learning fellows

The Office of Service-Learning is accepting applications until March 18 for the 2016-2017 Service-Learning Fellows program.

This yearlong faculty development program provides an opportunity for participating faculty to explore best practices in service-learning and community engagement while developing new service-learning courses or considering ways to integrate service-learning into existing courses or programs.

Complete application materials along with examples of previous Fellows projects are available at

Up to nine faculty members will be selected for participation and will receive a $2,500 faculty development award. All permanent, full-time UGA faculty members (academic tenure track, academic professionals, public service faculty, clinical faculty, and lecturers) with an interest in service-learning are eligible.

Previous experience with service-learning is not required.

Service-learning is an experiential learning method that provides opportunities for students to apply and more fully understand academic knowledge through projects that address genuine community need.

An information session for interested faculty will be held Feb. 29 from 4-5 p.m. at the Office of Service-Learning, 1242 1/2 S. Lumpkin St.

For questions related to application, contact Shannon O. Wilder, director, Office of Service-Learning at or 706-542-0535.
