Faculty Fellowship
This new opportunity by the Community Engagement Center (CEC) is meant to develop or deepen a relationship between Pitzer faculty teaching a social responsibility praxis (SRX) course and a community-based organization working on a specific project through course/partnership development support and project funding.
Course/partnership development support is served by way of consultation on a variety of components: syllabus creation, shared student learning outcomes with partners, etc. Project funding is given by way of stipends, award packages given to faculty intend to seed community-based projects/programs and relationships that will sustain engagement beyond the fellowship year. Part of this package gives faculty funding and the choice of a student research/teaching assistant, known as the “Junior fellow,” to support project and partnership development 5 hours a week. Faculty fellows supervise their Junior fellow and work together to oversee the execution of project goals within their SRX course and participate in activities with the community partner including meetings/project programming. This is a full academic year fellowship, October 1, 2019 – May 25th, 2019 (approximately 9 months minus breaks/holidays). This opportunity is limited to two Faculty Fellows per year.
