Register now! Service Learning 101: An Engaged Faculty Institute

The Experiential Learning Center invites applications for the Engaged Faculty Institute, which will run 12:30-2:30 p.m. every Friday from January 27 to March 3 on the Auraria Campus. Participants receive a $750 stipend.

Applications are due November 4 by 5 p.m. to Kyra Tarbell.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
Colorado Campus Compact, in conjunction with CU Denver, Regis University, CU Boulder, University of Denver, Johnson & Wales University, and Metropolitan State College of Denver, is pleased to present Service Learning 101: An Engaged Faculty Institute. The second annual Engaged Faculty Institute (EFI) will bring together faculty from all six institutions to transform their approach to teaching and learning through 1) the development of reciprocal community partnerships, 2) the incorporation of community-based experiences into their curriculum, and 3) the adoption of innovative critical reflection and assessment practices that deepen and document student learning.
Our first program last January was immensely popular with our faculty. As part of the program, faculty receive a stipend for participating and other benefits. The Institute also is unique and innovative because of the inclusion and partnership between the various institutions in Colorado and the interaction the faculty from each school will have with each other. We have organized and are now in the process of promoting our second session starting this January.

Epic Kickball Game a Success

On Saturday, Oct. 22, nearly 40 faculty, staff, students and alumni gathered at the Auraria softball field for the first-ever College of Engineering and Applied Science Epic Homecoming Kickball Game. Team captains Heidi Utt (CEEP) and Maria Rase (CE) rallied their teams through the game that ended in a tie of 9-9. The competition was fierce but friendly–the MVP awards went to college Dean Marc Ingber and Kevin Rase, perhaps the youngest player to participate at age 10.

The college had more participants for it’s homecoming event than any of the other CU Denver schools and colleges. Thanks to everyone who came out to play.

Stay tuned for photos.
