For Faculty

The Faculty Fund for Service-Learning

The Faculty Fund for Service-Learning supports faculty to fully integrate service-learning into their courses. This fund is used to directly enhance the quality of the service-learning projects that students complete. Any faculty member teaching a Scott/Ross Center supported service-learning course on the undergraduate or graduate level may apply for up to $500 per semester. This includes new courses in development with the Scott/Ross Center. The selection committee will include members of the Scott/Ross Center staff as well as members of the Center's Faculty Advisory Board.

Example of an approved Faculty Fund-supported project:

Bailey Hilt, a student from Erin DeCurtis's Management 100 course, arranged for a visit to Simmons College for 60 seventh graders from the Boston Teachers Union School, including a tour of campus, lunch, and opportunities to learn about the experience of a liberal arts education.
