Continuing in the tradition of IUPUI’s commitment to community engagement, funds are available for full-time faculty to participate in the Boyer Scholars Faculty Learning Community. The Boyer Scholars program, now in its sixth year, is for full-time faculty/instructors with experience in teaching service learning courses and interest in conducting research related to service learning or community engagement.
Influenced by the work of the late Ernest L. Boyer, the program is designed to:
- Strengthen faculty scholarship on service learning or civic engagement by structuring discussion, planning, feedback, and dissemination of research and scholarly work
- Cultivate faculty leadership for the civic engagement aspect of the campus mission by increasing understanding of current literature and research on service learning, particularly as it relates to disciplinary expertise
- Support faculty development by advancing scholarship of teaching and learning and documenting civic engagement in dossiers
- Increase departmental and campus support for service learning or civic engagement by implementing systematic assessment, evaluation, and research
