SOURCE Service-Learning Faculty Fellows Program


SOURCE is announcing applications for the 2014-15 SOURCE Service-Learning Faculty Fellows Program (FFP) to assist faculty in integrating service-learning into new or existing courses.  FFP will engage 6-9 faculty members from across the Johns Hopkins University Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health for a one-year term and then will become part of a JHU community of faculty who use service-learning pedagogy.  Funding for this program is provided by JHU President Daniels’ office.


Application Deadline: Monday, April 14th at 12:00 pm

Service-Learning Definition

“Service-learning is a structured learning experience that combines community service with preparation and reflection. Students engaged in service-learning provide community service in response to community-identified concerns and learn about the context in which service is provided, the connection between their service and their academic coursework, and their roles as citizens.”
Seifer S.D. (1998). Service-learning: Community-campus partnerships for health professions education. Academic Medicine, 73(3): 273-277.
