The Civic Engagement Graduate Fellows program connects emerging scholars with engaged faculty across the disciplines to support engaged learning and civic development among undergraduates. The program’s purposes are to enhance courses taught by Civic Engagement Faculty Fellows and to provide professional development to graduate students interested in the pedagogy of engaged civic learning.

This program is open to any graduate student on the Camden campus, and prior teaching experience is not necessary. Civic Engagement Graduate Fellows receive a stipend.
