The Office of the Provost, Center for Engagement and Community Development, and Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy announce the 2019-2020 Civic Engagement Fellows cohort.

The Civic Engagement Fellows, funded by the Kettering Foundation, is an invited professional development and peer-learning group of faculty and professional staff committed to understanding and integrating deliberative practice within community-engaged scholarship.

The Civic Engagement Fellows program, led by Timothy Shaffer and David Procter, works to build a community of practice around community-engaged scholarship; strengthen faculty and staff's understanding of and commitment to deliberative practices within community-engaged scholarship; create faculty cohorts who address significant campus and community challenges; and energize faculty and staff to become agents of change.
