Scholarship of Engagement Fellows

Purpose

The purpose of the Scholarship of Engagement Fellows Program is to foster the development of the scholarship of engagement for faculty throughout the Purdue system in support of the promotion and/or tenure process. 

Program description

Twelve faculty members from the West Lafayette, Purdue Northwest and Purdue Ft. Wayne campuses, at the rank of assistant or associate professor, will be chosen to participate in this program designed to span the 2020-2021 academic calendar year.  Faculty in the tenure track or clinical track are invited to apply.  These individuals will work with a panel of senior faculty mentors from the Purdue system who have a history of successful engaged scholarship.  This program will focus on: (1) understanding the scholarship of engagement; (2) documenting impact; and (3) evaluating impact.  Fellows will receive direct feedback from mentors on their promotion document, based on scholarship of engagement.

Scholarship of Engagement Fellows will receive a stipend of $1,500 to be used for activities related to the expectations below:
