Competency-based faculty development in community-engaged scholarship

May 1, 2015

The Faculty for the Engaged Campus initiative (FEC) of Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) developed a one-year competency-based faculty development pilot program designed to achieve two objectives: increase competencies in community engagement and community engaged scholarship and encourage participants to serve as ambassadors of engaged scholarship. This article describes the components of the pilot-program, and analyzes its impact and effectiveness by examining participant surveys and interviews. Findings, critical program features, and lessons learned are explored.
