Faculty Opportunity: Social Justice Faculty Externship
The Equity and Campus Diversity Office and the Civic and Community Engagement Office are opening the application process for two faculty Social Justice Faculty Externship opportunities for summer 2022. This summer partnership initiative focuses on collaborative faculty-community partner connections that deepen understanding and build opportunities to expand and strengthen equity and justice in our community. The faculty member and community organization each receive financial benefit and funds for materials through a summer partnership focused on learning and sharing. Faculty participants will engage in learning opportunities with community organizations that provide leadership in addressing issues of social justice, and will work to extend their learning to students through curricular change. At the same time, the organizations will benefit through faculty time and attention to a project using the faculty member’s skills and experiences. Please review details and application materials, and contact me or Laura Hill Rao, director of civic and community engagement, with questions. The application deadline is Tuesday, February 15.
