Apply by 8/30: Teaching for a Future of Shared Prosperity
Campus Compact is pleased to invite faculty members to submit applications to participate in the “Teaching for a Future of Shared Prosperity” project. This effort will engage faculty and their students in envisioning an economy that is in line with their values and how to take action towards creating a sustainable economic future.
The Teaching for a Future of Shared Prosperity project aims to increase student understanding of their own economic futures and the factors that impact it. To do this, a cohort of selected faculty members from the Campus Compact network will be trained to use the National Issues Forum Youth and Opportunity issue guide to incorporate deliberative dialogue into their course(s).
The cohort will be convened throughout the fall to share resources and learning. Participating faculty will also have the opportunity to present on the project as part of Campus Compact’s national virtual conference March 29-31, 2022. A total of 15 faculty members will be selected to participate. We welcome applications from faculty in all disciplines from our member colleges and universities. Faculty will receive a $500 stipend to support participation.
