Credit-Bearing Community Engaged Learning

Credit-Bearing Community Engaged Learning at Nazareth brings together students and faculty with members of the communities that surround us, locally and globally, as part of a course or other credit-bearing activity. Such collaborations include those traditionally described as "service-learning" as well as internships and other pre-professional work in our communities.

Such work is guided by our Community Engaged Learning Philosophy Statement. And it is supported by the Faculty Scholar for Community Engaged Learning, a college-wide appointment of a faculty member with reassigned time to enable capacity-building in these endeavors. The current Faculty Scholar, Ed Wiltse (, is eager to support colleagues at any phase of project conception and development.

Nazareth also supports Credit-Bearing Community Engaged Learning through per-course stipends that faculty may request to purchase refreshments or materials for events: Request stipend support.

In addition, there are faculty grants for developing new Credit-Bearing Community Engaged Learning projects. The Request for Proposals document provides details, as well as links to the application forms for Exploration and Implementation grants.
