The Provost’s Faculty Fellows-in-Residence positions are intended to provide faculty members with leadership and administrative experience, while offering faculty perspective, guidance and vision to the administrative offices that they serve. Faculty fellows work closely with program directors on projects that help those units address UTEP’s mission and goals.
The main goals for the 2019-20 CCE Faculty Fellowship are to support the CCE to:
- Expand and support the network of Community-Engaged Scholars through facilitating open SPACES (Spaces for the Promotion and Advancement of Community-Engaged Scholarship)
- Provide capacity-building, mentoring, and service-learning opportunities for faculty and community partners
- Establish and launch he Community-Engaged Scholarship Institute
Additional goals may include exploring external funding opportunities, contributing to the Provost’s Community Engagement Council’s strategic planning efforts, and offering guidance and consultation to faculty interested in pursuing community-based work.
CCE Faculty Fellows have a strong record of community-engaged research and scholarship and are familiar with the Provost’s Task Force Report on Community Engagement.
