This FLC is designed for full and part-time faculty who:
Application deadline: Thursday, December 13
Up to 10 participants will be selected and each will receive a $500 stipend (1/2 in Spring 2020 and ½ in Fall 2020).
The grant application can be downloaded via the link to the left.
Commitment: participants will be asked to commit to attending the meetings outlined below and will complete short readings/activities in preparation for the discussions. Participants will, by the end of the FLC, have designed and implemented a project or course module that fits one of the following options:
Option 1: design a project for implementation in a course you are teaching in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 that incorporates community-centered project-based learning in cooperation with the IMPACT office/Levesque Institute.
Option 2: Design a course module for implementation in a course you are teaching in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 that will help students gain a deeper understanding of the way in which NU’s Catholic and Vincentian mission informs your discipline. The module should 1) utilize or create case studies from our local community and 2) align with one of the four pillars of the Levesque Institute (Early Childhood, Community Outreach, Health and Wellness, and Housing) https://levesqueinstitute.niagara.edu/programs/.
Participants will also be expected to share the outcome of their project or module at a showcase event and complete a post-FLC evaluation of the experience.
