Faculty Fellows

The success of service-learning at UNCP depends on acknowledging and supporting faculty who lead innovative service-learning and civic engagement courses and developing advocates of service-learning in departments across campus. Faculty Fellows in Service-Learning inspire students in engaged learning, connect our campus to our community, and help other faculty integrate service-learning into their classes.

Faculty Fellows in Service-Learning

  • teach at least one service-learning designated course each semester of their fellowship,
  • participate in and provide professional development programs and individual mentoring in service-learning and civic engagement to colleagues in their department and school or college throughout the year of their fellowship and at a summer institute, and
  • collaborate closely with the Director of Service-Learning in areas of program assessment, proposal of new service-learning courses and programs, and oversight of service-learning curricula.





Service-Learning is service to the community that takes place within the curriculum. It is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities. At UNCP, faculty and students take part in service-learning to enhance learning and achievement in a wide variety of majors and minors, supported through a partnership between UNCP's Office of Academic Affairs and Division of Student Affairs.

Faculty and students benefit from service-learning in many ways. It helps you become someone who has the perspective and tools to solve problems, features that will set you apart in your professional life. What's more, it gives you the opportunity to develop your personal goals and values at the same time you accomplish your academic goals. Finally, service-learning empowers you to take part in the life of our community, as an informed voter, a team player, and an effective leader.
