Faculty advisory committee (FAC)

Institute for Community Engagement and Scholarship Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC)

The ICES Faculty Advisory Committee promotes community-engaged teaching, learning, research and service within Metropolitan State’s academic units, and serves as a mechanism to support and encourage interdisciplinary faculty collaboration to advance academic community engagement.  The FAC members act individually and collectively to disseminate best practices, emphasize community engagement in the development of new curricula, refer faculty colleagues to appropriate resources, and to develop and promote policies and procedures through the IFO that advance the practice of community engaged teaching, learning, and scholarship.

Academic Year 2019-2020 Priorities

  • Promote the ICES community-engaged scholarship grant RFP; review proposals and select awardees

  • Implement online application for Community Engagement (CE) course designation and review applications for the CE designation

  • Select faculty representatives to the Community Engagement Council and address curricular and academic issues referred by the Council to the Faculty Advisory Group

  • Review and recommend policies and procedures to advance high quality academic community engagement

  • Determine new forms of faculty recognition for community engaged teaching, learning, and scholarship and serve on review committees for internal and external community engagement awards
