The Mindich Program in Engaged Scholarship (MPES) aims to stimulate faculty innovations in teaching and learning through the development of applied and experiential learning experiences with people or in communities beyond the Harvard context. By transcending the boundaries of the classroom, the MPES aims to link academic study to real-world questions, problems, and opportunities, while challenging students to integrate course content and scholarly perspectives with community and non-academic perspectives, knowledge, and expertise.
The MPES invites funding requests from FAS faculty to develop undergraduate engaged scholarship courses. Proposals may be for the development of new courses, as well as for the substantive redesign of existing courses.
Applications for the Faculty Curricular Innovation Award are currently closed.
Additional Resources, including readings, curriculum planning materials, and course syllabi, are available on the Engaged Scholarship Canvas site
