Faculty member named service-learning fellow
Tammy Swecker (B.S. ’93, M.Ed. ’05), associate professor, Department of Oral Health Promotion and Community Outreach, has been selected as one of the 2014-2015 VCU Service-Learning Faculty Fellows.
She was selected from a competitive pool of faculty member applicants based on her previous involvement in service-learning and community-engagement as well as a proposed plan for enhancing community-engaged teaching, scholarship and service at the VCU School of Dentistry during the fellowship year.
The VCU Service-Learning Faculty Fellow Program supports faculty who have experience in teaching service-learning classes to improve, document and disseminate their mastery of service-learning to others. Fellows are appointed for one year with the potential of extending their appointment for one additional year and receive a stipend for their participation in the program.
