The Sturzl Center for Community Service & Learning supports and develops the college’s mission to serve the common good by fostering campus-wide discussion on service, promoting community engagement and recognizing significant contributions to serving the common good in Brown County and beyond.

Faculty Fellows for Community Engagement

Faculty fellows for community engagement meet throughout the academic year in a learning community that seeks to:

  • Improve student learning and reinvigorate teaching through innovative pedagogies.
  • Enhance a supportive teaching community through shared faculty discussion.
  • Encourage deep thinking on the scholarship of teaching and learning.

With monthly readings and discussions, each fellow develops or revises a course or project that enhances student learning and strengthens campus-community partnerships.
