For Faculty and Staff - Overview
Faculty Engaged Scholars
The Faculty Engaged Scholars Program is an initiative of the Carolina Center for Public Service to advance faculty involvement in the scholarship of engagement. The first class of eight Scholars begins the two-year program in January 2008. A new cohort of at least five Scholars will enter each year to participate in learning about and pursuing community engagement through scholarly endeavor. Learn more.

The Center honors individual students, faculty, staff and University units and organizations for extraordinary and exemplary public service through annual Public Service Awards. The awards include the Robert E. Bryan Public Service Award, the Ned Brooks Award for Public Service, and the Office of the Provost Engaged Scholarship Award. Learn more.
CCPS has supported a diverse array of faculty and staff public service and engagement projects. Since 1999, the Center has awarded more than 60 grants to faculty, staff and students totaling more than $325,000. These seed grants have enabled faculty and staff to pilot service projects in collaboration with local communities.
The Carolina Center for Public Service strengthens the University's public service commitment by promoting scholarship and service that are responsive to the concerns of the state and contribute to the common good.
