ENACT Announces Newest Cohort of Faculty Fellows

Jan 25, 2018

ENACT: The Educational Network for Active Civic Transformation is happy to announce the second cohort of ENACT Faculty Fellows. The newest 13 faculty fellows hail from colleges and universities in or near the state capitals of Alabama, California, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon and Pennsylvania.

This cohort of fellows joins a thriving national network of 16 faculty fellows across the United States who are teaching new courses or enhancing existing courses that engage students in hands-on study and work related to state-level legislation. Fellows will advance this work together, as all 29 fellows learn from one another's pedagogy and sharing in each other's successes.

"Everyone at ENACT is excited to welcome the newly selected fellows," says ENACT Academic Program Director Melissa Stimell, who developed and teaches the Brandeis ENACT course that serves as a model for the national program. "Their ideas, experience and commitment to undergraduate civic engagement will further strengthen the work of ENACT."

The second cohort ENACT Fellows will attend a five-day summer workshop hosted by Brandeis University from May 20-24, 2018, where they will be joined by experienced ENACT Faculty Fellows, program staff, and guest speakers. ENACT Fellows and their students will also have full access to the online ENACT network.
