The Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award

Expires: 2012-03-30

The Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award recognizes one senior faculty member (post-tenure or middle-to-late career at institutions without tenure) each year. Honorees (who must be affiliated with a Campus Compact member institution) are recognized for exemplary engaged scholarship, including leadership in advancing students’ civic learning, conducting community-based research, fostering reciprocal community partnerships, building institutional commitments to service-learning and civic engagement, and other means of enhancing higher education’s contributions to the public good. The award — previously known as the Thomas Ehrlich Faculty Award for Service-Learning — is named in honor of Thomas Ehrlich, former chair of the Campus Compact board of directors and president emeritus of Indiana University.

The recipient and finalists will be announced in early fall of 2015.  The recipient and finalists will be honored at Campus Compact’s 30th Anniversary Conference in March 2016. In addition, the winner will receive a $2,000 award, free conference registration to attend the Conference, plus lodging and airfare to the conference. 

Only electronic nominations and supporting documents will be accepted. No items will be accepted via fax or mail. These documents can be uploaded as a plain Word Document (.doc), Rich Text Format (.rtf), or as a PDF (Portable Document Format).

All application materials are due by midnight (EST) Friday May 22, 2015

Through Campus Compact, we can help students learn the value of building communities. The benefit to our campus is not merely that our civic community is improved. It is that our students graduate with habits of good citizenship they will carry through life."
