Civic engagement of students, faculty, and staff is identified as central to the IUPUI's mission. Although nearly all of the Campus Compact Indicators of Engagement could be cited as mechanisms through which IUPUI's civic engagement mission is supported (see Bringle & Hatcher, 2004), this article will focus on faculty roles and rewards. Following an introduction that describes the university's core mission and values with respect to civic engagement, the discussion will focus on specific policies, procedures, and programs to support faculty roles and rewards for civic engagement. A conceptual framework for faculty development, based on experiential learning theory (Kolb, 1984) is used to organize a description of faculty development activities to promote civic engagement.
