Dr. Shauna Cooper, an Associate Professor of Developmental Psychology, was recently selected as one of 8-10 faculty members for the 7th Class of Thorp Faculty Engaged Scholars (FES).
Thorp Faculty Engaged Scholars are leaders in their respective fields and will participate in a 2-year program sponsored by the Carolina Center for Public Service. The program brings together selected faculty from across campus to engage in an experiential, competency-based curriculum designed to advance their engaged scholarships. Every other year, 8-10 faculty members are selected to participate in FES, a program that aims to understand and pursue community engagement through scholarly endeavors. During the two-year program, scholars participate in sessions in community settings focused on exemplary university-community partnerships. While developing their own projects with community partners, scholars form a learning community with guidance and support.
