FacultyHelp develop collaborative partnerships between students and the University.
The academy’s primary purpose is to help all faculty achieve the goal of developing collaborative partnerships between students and the University as it fulfills its land-grant mission—partnerships resulting in transformative experiences that complement student engagement while serving the greater good.
To accomplish this goal, the academy is designed to:
- Sustain a community of scholars with common interests in student engagement
- Provide resources and mentoring to support faculty who wish to incorporate student engagement into their curriculum
- Encourage the development of a research agenda for student engagement at Penn State that can be broadly disseminated
In this section, you will find useful information to begin planning your project as well as important resources and potential partners. Additionally, you will find directions to access the Faculty Academy Shared Library with peer-reviewed student engagement sources.
