Twenty-five faculty and academic staff from nine Cornell colleges and units are Engaged Faculty Fellows for the 2023-24 academic year, with projects including researching economic and racial disparities in driver’s license suspensions, developing a seminar in collaboration with global universities that serve Indigenous student populations and advancing support for community-engaged student internships.
A program of the David M. Einhorn Center for Community Engagement, the Engaged Faculty Fellowship is a network of scholars dedicated to advancing community-engaged learning at Cornell and within their respective fields.
More than 160 faculty and staff members have become fellows since the program launched in 2013.
“The work of our Engaged Faculty Fellows epitomizes Cornell’s core value of public engagement,” said Katherine McComas, vice provost for engagement and land-grant affairs, and a professor of communication in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. “Through their engaged research and teaching, our fellows are helping us realize the ideals of our land-grant mission and ensure that Cornell’s positive impact reaches far beyond the university.”
