Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning –faculty mentors needed for Science Shop Projects

(Nov. 12, 2013) CCESL's Science Shop is a forum for DU students, along with a faculty mentor, to connect and collaborate with community organizations to do academic work that addresses public problems.

CCESL piloted a very successful Science Shop project this past year – see Amber Morse's work with Project Pave (page 10) – and is now ready to hit the ground running with newer projects. Community organizations have been extremely receptive, and we now maintain a growing list of research questions that are available for faculty members to inquire about; see the Current List of Available Science Shop Projects.

If you are interested in participating as a faculty mentor for a Science Shop project, especially one of the projects currently awaiting student-faculty interest, please contact us right away. In turn, we will be happy to facilitate communication with the community partner as well as help you to look for interested students here at DU.
