The Office of Community Engagement promotes many opportunities for CSUSB faculty to aid in advancing the quality of life in the Inland Empire. We facilitate two mini-grant opportunities to aid in the development of community-based projects.
The Service Learning Faculty Fellowship program provides faculty support for adding a service learning component into course curriculum. More details about the program and application requirements can be found at the "Service Learning" link on the left side of this web page.
The Community-Based Research mini-grant provides faculty support for starting or continuing community-based research projects. More details about the program and application requirements can be found at the "Community-Based Research" link on the left side of this web page.
We are also promoting a one-time travel grant program to enhance faculty knowledge and participation in service learning, community engagement and/or community-based participatory research. I have compiled some conferences that may be of interest (see below), although other related conferences will certainly be considered.
The deadline for your application for funding is Thursday, March 15th. Please email Diane Podolske (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or for the application materials. Thank you!
