We are pleased to announce that the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President will recognize for the first time, the Outstanding Community-Engaged Teaching Award.

Applications are due Friday, October 3, 2014 at 5:00pm.
OCEP Director Elizabeth Strom stated: “I’m constantly impressed by the many ways our faculty engage their students while addressing important community issues. Whether involving students in community-based research, or adopting such high-impact teaching practices as service-learning, USF faculty show that effective teaching and learning happen both in and outside the classroom, with spillover effects that have far-reaching benefits. The Outstanding Community Engaged Teaching Award recognizes faculty whose work exemplifies the OCEP goal of ‘building mutually beneficial and reciprocal university–community partnerships founded on community engaged scholarship and service-learning pedagogies.’”
