The CCEL and Resources for Faculty

ccel  The CCEL supports faculty interested in engaging their
  students in community based projects, incorporating
  community based teaching methods, and working in
  partnership with nonprofit organizations across the
  Hudson River Valley. Faculty develop their community
  based teaching with the following supports:

          •  Workshops on best practices
          •  Individual consultation
          •  Logistics support
          •  CCEL call for projects

  Most of these supports are made available through the
  Center’s Faculty Fellows Program, but the Center supports
  all Marist faculty members with information, referrals and
  technical assistance. 

The Faculty Fellows Program


  Each year a cohort of faculty are selected as Fellows who commit
  to creating or revising a course that will utilize the best practices of
  Community Based Learning.

  Fellows receive a stipend to participate in a series of workshops on
  course development. They also gain access to ongoing technical
  assistance and modest program funds to defray costs associated
  with the course, such as transportation or supplies.

  In the past 3 years, Faculty Fellows have represented a wide range of
  disciplines including Digital Media, English, Economics, History,
  Education, and Sociology. Along with other affiliated faculty, this
  year's cohort of Fellows will reach nearly 425 students in 16 courses
  and work with more than 10 local nonprofit organizations.
