The UNO Service Learning Academy (SLA) Faculty Fellows program is a critical component in the University’s efforts to accomplish its strategic plan and metropolitan mission. Our student-centered, academically-excellent and community-engaged institution is richened by the Faculty Fellows who teach in collaboration with the community and support service learning course development.
The SLA Faculty Fellows program has been designed to empower experienced and committed service learning faculty to cultivate and support interest in service learning in their fellow faculty members – a means by which to increase the number of undergraduate and graduate courses with service learning components. The program also supports the scholarship of engagement and engaged scholarship through its faculty development and conference presentation components.
Two positions are available for full-time faculty who have taught at least three semesters of service learning courses. Chosen Fellows receive a stipend and professional development support.
