Faculty and staff can get involved with CHER through becoming a faculty fellow for the Liberal Arts Action Lab, teaching a Community Learning course, or volunteering with the Office of Community Service and Civic Engagement.
For one-on-one help with course design, Director of Community Learning Erica Crowley is excited to work with you on thinking through preliminary ideas, designing assignments, choosing readings, or building partnerships.
Faculty Fellows participate in the Action Lab’s team-based projects to explore community partners’ research questions. They assist the Action Lab Director in providing additional academic guidance and evaluating student work, receiving a $1,000 stipend.
Continuing faculty in their first five years at Trinity are invited to apply to join the Community Learning Faculty Fellows (CLiFF) program. Fellows receive a $1,500 stipend to participate in six meetings during the academic year to discuss and design a Community Learning component to be taught in one of their upcoming courses.
