2011 Community of Service-Learning Faculty Fellows named

March 28, 2011

The Office of the Vice Provost for Engagement and the Service Engagement Advisory Board have selected seven faculty members to be Purdue's 2011 Community of Service-Learning Faculty Fellows.

The seven new fellows join 32 other service-learning fellows at Purdue, bringing the total number to 39.

The program, which has been in place since 2004, selects fellows based on their experience with service-learning courses and potential for providing leadership and stewardship for service-learning to the campus.

The 2011 fellows are:

* Dulcy Abraham, School of Civil Engineering, College of Engineering.
* Paul Ebner, Department of Animal Sciences, College of Agriculture.
* Karen Foli, School of Nursing, College of Health and Human Sciences.
* Daphene Cyr Koch, Department of Building Construction Management, College of Technology.
* John Lumkes, Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering, colleges of Agriculture and Engineering.
* Sandra Sydnor-Buosso, Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management, College of Health and Human Sciences.
* Song No, Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, College of Liberal Arts.

The program's grants allow the fellows to pursue ongoing service-learning courses and advance the opportunities for students to learn while providing service to a community. Although many of the service-learning courses are engaged with local and regional communities, a growing number provide students the opportunity to do service projects while studying abroad and other locations nationally.
