News & Notes

2016-2017 Community-Based Learning Faculty Fellowship

The JCCTL is partnering with the Center for Public Service and the Provost’s Office to co-sponsor the 2016-2017 Community-Based Learning Faculty Fellowship. With the aim of expanding, deepening, and institutionalizing Community-Based Learning at Gettysburg College, this Fellowship provides resources and support for faculty to design a new course or modify an existing one to include a Community-Based Learning component. The Fellowship is a year-long commitment that includes a $750 stipend.

More information and the application are on the CPS website. Or contact Kim Davidson or Amy Dailey.

Deadline: May 1, 2016.

Faculty writing group:
Chloe Ruff (Education), Brent Harger (Sociology), and Sahana Mukherjee (Psychology) have formed a social science based writing group that meets on Wednesdays from 8:30am-9:45am at the Ragged Edge Coffeehouse (110 Chambersburg St). Anyone interested in joining the group should contact them or just show up on Wednesday. No need to be a social scientist to participate.
