Civic Engagement & Social Responsibility (CESR) Curricular Support Fund
Funding and program support are available to all faculty members interested in incorporating a practical or experiential component into coursework that will enhance learning while encouraging ethical civic participation.
The CESR Curricular Support Fund ($3000) from the Initiative on Ethical Engagement and Leadership (IEEL) will be available for the 2015-16 academic year, and preference will be given to endeavors taking place in the Greater Philadelphia region. Proposals should be limited to one page in length, and include a budget that can range from $50- $750.
Expenses might include but are not limited to:
- outreach activities to develop community partnerships
- transportation costs associated with attending local events, visiting local groups or organizations
- materials or training for faculty to develop new pedagogical approaches and strategies.
Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis until total budget ($3000) has been allocated. Questions and requests should be directed to Janice Lion, Coordinator for CESR activities this year.
Faculty and Staff interested in providing input into the blueprint for CESR initiatives at Haverford College can be in touch with any member of the group or join the CESR working group. The CESR Working Group includes: Janice Lion, Kelly Cleary, Kaye Edwards, Theresa Tensuan and Fran Blase.
