2012 Community of Service-Learning Faculty Fellows named

May 11, 2012

The Office of the Associate Vice President for Engagement, the Service Engagement Advisory Board and the Center for Instructional Excellence have selected four faculty members to be Purdue's 2012 Community of Service-Learning Faculty Fellows.

The four new fellows join 40 other service-learning fellows at Purdue, bringing the total number to 44. The program has been in place since 2004. The program is competitive, and fellows are selected based on their experience with service-learning courses and potential for providing leadership and stewardship for service-learning to the campus while being supported by the Center for Instructional Excellence.

The 2012 fellows are:

* Lynetta Freeman, veterinary clinical sciences.
* Monica Miller, pharmacy practice.
* JoAnn Phillion, curriculum and instruction.
* Lori Unruh Snyder, agronomy.

The 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.
