The Do Good Faculty Fellows program supports faculty members as scholars, teachers, advisors, and educational leaders who want to explore social innovation broadly and deeply. Fellows will consider how students can engage in social innovation in its various forms (e.g. service-learning, civic engagement, philanthropy) and how they can engage students in their courses to address social problems. During the program, the Do Good Faculty Fellows will propose, and ultimately implement, an innovative Do Good course or curriculum within their respective specializations, departments, colleges, schools, or units.
