Northeastern University: Center of Community Services

Service-Learning Fellows Program

Co-facilitated by the Service-Learning Program and the Teaching & Learning Group at Northeastern, the Service-Learning Fellows Program is a 1.5 year long program which leads a small cohort of faculty participants through an examination of the service-learning and evidence-based teaching literature, includes collegial sharing with and between faculty and community members, and results in the implementation or deepening of a service-learning course or component. Participants build knowledge and awareness related to enhancing student learning and engagement, connecting courses with social issues, and strengthening community relationships.

Please note that the 2019-2020 cohort is currently full.

  • Pick a course(s) in which you would like to incorporate or deepen service-learning;
