Ten GC faculty and staff will participate in the inaugural ENGAGE Apprentice Cohort through the Community-based Engaged Learning (C-bEL) workshop series.  Participants will attend workshops over the course of the 2014-2015 academic year, as they design a Community-based Engaged Learning experience for GC students. Participants receive stipends for participating in the cohort and for implementation of their C-bEL experience. Each participant will report his or her work in the form of an implementation proposal, which will serve as a mini-grant application if the participant decides to pursue funding for implementation. The 2014-2015 Apprentice Cohort are:

  • Marcela Chiorescu, Assistant Professor of Mathematics
  • Peggy Elliott, Assistant Professor of French
  • Robin Lewis, Director of the Office of Grants and Sponsored Projects
