In an ongoing effort to provide professional development and training for campus leaders across the state, Florida Campus Compact (FL|CC) invites Service-Learning/Civic Engagement/Community Service Directors (CSDs), Coordinators, and Faculty to apply for the 2012-2013 Emerging Scholars Program. This yearlong program will provide an opportunity for participants to develop their interests in service-learning while working with experts in the field as they continue to build and develop high quality service-learning/civic engagement programs.
Emerging Scholars will be expected to:
- Participate in service-learning workshops and seminars

- Produce resources for the field and receive feedback
- Develop and promote sustainable programs
In the course of the year, scholars will share their accomplishments and seek advice on their challenges through conference calls and face-to-face meetings with FL|CC staff members, other program participants, and service-learning experts. Each scholar will develop and submit a project portfolio, which will include personal reflections on the value of this program, best practices, and research related to the programs or projects they create or improve.
Upon completion, participants may apply for the "FL|CC Certified Scholars Program" for further professional development and training in the field of service-learning.
In an effort to develop a corps of regional presenters and consultants who can promote best practices in service-learning and community engagement across the state of Florida, Florida Campus Compact (FL|CC) invites faculty and staff members who are well acquainted with service-learning to apply for the 2012-2013 Class of Certified Scholars. This structured certification program produces effective presenters and consultants to support FL|CC campuses and create inter-campus collaboration through trainings and workshops.
The FL|CC Certified Scholar Program consists of three sequential phases:
- Participants will take part in workshops hosted by FL|CC highlighting various strategies for successfully hosting trainings, workshops, and presentations. All participants will create a peer reviewed presentation on a selected service-learning subject. Throughout the program, participants will have the opportunity to submit outlines, research, and any other corresponding work to experts in the field for suggestions and feedback.
- Participants will be expected to offer their preapproved presentation to at least one member campus in the state during the program year. After revisions and peer evaluation, each scholar will be certified as an official service-learning consultant.
- Upon completion of this program, Certified Scholars will maintain a close relationship with FL|CC, giving trainings/workshops/presentations, providing consultative services, and representing FL|CC in various capacities in order to expand the impact of our work statewide.
