According to Elyse Aurbach, the public engagement lead for the U-M Center for Academic Innovation, the Public Engagement Faculty Fellowship program “brings faculty together to learn with and from one another, and from expert public engagement practitioners across campus. The fellows will strengthen their skills and community, while also learning the breadth of public engagement and creating new opportunities for innovative projects to emerge.” Fellowships consist of two phases: a Studio Experience, which consists of workshops, consultations with experts, and smaller-scale communications projects; and Project Support, which grants Fellows up to $10,000 in funding for larger and more ambitious public engagement projects.
