Building Capacity for Community-Engaged Scholarship: Evaluation of the Faculty Development Component of the Faculty for the Engaged Campus Initiative
Gelmon, Sherril; Blanchard, Lynn; Ryan, Katharine; Seifer, Sarena D.
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v16 n1 p21-45 Mar 2012
This article reports the findings of an evaluation of the faculty development component of the Faculty for the Engaged Campus initiative. For this component, the Community-Engaged Scholarship Faculty Development Charrette was attended by 20 university teams from across the United States, and six teams subsequently received 2 years of funding and technical assistance. This project was intended to stimulate campus-wide, innovative, competency-based faculty development programs for community-engaged faculty. The findings suggest that external funding, ongoing support beyond a one-time charrette, and a set of standard curricular tools can help institutions implement community-engaged scholarship faculty development programs on their campuses. (Contains 5 figures and 4 tables.)
