Congratulations to 2012-2013 ACE Fellows!

The ACE Fellows Program, in partnership with the Institute for Public Engagement, the Teaching and Learning Center, and the Dean of the College, provides support for selected faculty fellows interested in incorporating service-learning into their courses.

The program provides stipends of $1,250 as well as services designed to enhance teaching and enrich learning. ACE Fellows have the opportunity to work with new and veteran ACE Fellows as they establish relationships with community partners, develop syllabi, and assess pedagogical strategies and outcomes.
