Community Engaged Teaching Fellowship
The Community Engaged Teaching Fellowship—formerly the Faculty Fellows program—provides a community of practice to instructors wishing to incorporate community-engaged learning (CEL) into their courses.
Often called “service learning,” these courses combine learning goals and community service to enhance both student growth and the common good. At Stanford, these are referred to as Cardinal Courses.
- Establish a cohort of early-career and experienced instructors interested in using CEL in their teaching
- Increase the number of Cardinal Courses
- Enhance course content through consultation with CEL experts
- Introduce instructors to potential community partners
- Provide a space for facilitated discussions, including:
- Designing courses
- Preparing students for ethical and effective community engagement
- Building reciprocal community partner relationships
- Assessing student learning and course outcomes
All faculty, lecturers, academic staff are eligible to apply.
- Participate in monthly, two-hour, in-person meetings from January to June
- Conceptualize, develop, redesign, and/or teach a Cardinal Course
- Contribute to the field of community-engaged scholarship through a presentation about the fellowship experience
Fellows who complete the program will receive $2,000 to offset expenses associated with course development or CEL-related professional development. Previous Fellows have used this funding for conference attendance, materials, subscriptions, student assistants, and/or partner honoraria. In addition to the $2,000 stipend, Fellows are eligible to apply for a Cardinal Course grant of up to $4,000.
