Two faculty members with the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health, Jennifer Griffith, Dr.P.H., M.P.H, and Jennifer Horney, Ph.D., M.P.H., C.P.H., have been selected to serve as Service-Learning Faculty Fellows for the 2014-2015 academic year.

The Service-Learning Faculty Fellow Program is a professional development program designed to provide faculty from across Texas A&M University (TAMU) with the opportunity to integrate service learning into the classroom and promote community engagement. This program is a joint partnership between the Center for Teaching Excellence, the Office of the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies, and the Department of Student Activities Leadership and Service Center.

Griffith and Horney are among seven members of the 2014-2015 cohort of TAMU faculty chosen for this opportunity. Over the course of the year, they will expand their knowledge of service-learning theory, engage in experiential learning activities, participate in development of a service-learning project, and identify practical applications for what is learned in the classroom.

At the completion of the year, the cohort will participate in a showcase where they can present what they have learned and discuss new ways to engage with local and global communities. Through their collaborations and extensive service-learning training each member will be established as a leader in service and outreach for their campus community.
