28th Faculty Fellows Cohort Selected
Each cohort member will receive a grant of $7,500 to complete their proposed research project. Dr. Angela Coppola of Indiana University Kokomo will lead as the Senior Faculty Fellow for the cohort.
The Community-Engaged Alliance Faculty Fellows program is an 18-month community of practice designed to reflect Ernest Boyer’s vision of the scholarship of engagement. Selected individuals serve as part of a cohort with other engaged scholars from CEA partner campuses and work in partnership on a scholarly project that seeks to advance the understanding and practice of community engagement. Fellows simultaneously incorporate community engagement into the three components of faculty work: teaching, research, and service.
