Faculty Fellows: Community-Engaged Teaching Program


The Faculty Fellows: Community-Engaged Teaching (CET) Program will create a small cohort of cross-campus faculty who are experienced community-engaged teachers to do some communal reflection, collective problem-solving, and knowledge sharing as we navigate what CET looks like during COVID times.


Participants with prior community-engaged teaching experience who are (or are considering) teaching a community-engaged class this academic year may apply and are eligible to receive $1,050 ($350/quarter). Participants will engage in a guided cohort experience. Facilitators from the Center for Community Engagement to advance Scholarship and Learning (CCESL), DU Grand Challenges (DUGC), the Writing Program (WP), and the Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL) will craft meetings to meet real-time needs of cohort members and will provide individualized support, help finding resources to support your needs, and will be available for meetings/consultations.


  • Meeting virtually approximately every 3 weeks (e.g. 3x/quarter) for 1 hour
  • Submitting short reflections ahead of each meeting (optional) to help inform what we discuss/cover to make the most of our time together
  • Creating an abstract by the end of the year for a Teacher-Action Research or Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project you could pursue in the future
  • Submitting one public reflection that can be published in CCESL's Public Good Impact

Program facilitators will also be collecting reflections and observations about the group experience to inform best practices for community engagement in remote/hybrid classes and to support future faculty professional development around such engagement.
