Spring 2023 service-learning fellowships awarded for Purdue-community partnerships

Purdue’s Office of Engagement has selected nine Purdue instructors for its spring 2023 Service-Learning Fellows program. This program fosters the development and institutionalization of service-learning courses and curricula, projects and scholarly pursuits at Purdue, as well as strengthening collaborative efforts and outcomes in communities.

Throughout the spring semester, fellows will work with service-learning staff and community partners to explore the nature of service-learning courses and partnerships at Purdue amid the ever-changing reality of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and systemic injustice. Together, participants will collaboratively develop the skills and tools needed to deliver effective, mutually beneficial service-learning courses. Each fellow receives up to $2,000 to fund their project.

  • Erin Hoying, clinical assistant professor, nursing, Purdue West Lafayette
