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.

This is a full academic year fellowship, TBA (approximately 9 months minus breaks/holidays). This opportunity is limited to two Faculty Fellows per year.

For more information regarding the Faculty Fellowship please contact the CEC Program Administrator, Jonathan Chan at Jonathan_Chan@pitzer.edu
