Faculty Involvement

More about Jerry's BBC Fellows experience ...jerry

Faculty mentors play an important role in the Building Better Communities Fellows program. You will direct a team of students as they work on a problem-based project for an Indiana company or organization.

Benefits for faculty include:

  • putting research into action through immersive learning experiences
  • applying knowledge and expertise in a business or community setting
  • strengthening project management and leadership skills
  • mentoring a group of diverse, hard-working students
  • playing a role in building Indiana's economy
  • shaping Indiana's future through student development

Fellows can provide support for your project with:
  • Project Planning
  • Professional development workshops for students
  • Student recruitment/course enrollment
  • Scholarship awards
  • Marketing opportunities
  • Technical support and equipment

Interested faculty can collaborate with a business partner to submit project proposals that meet goals of our program. Faculty mentors receive compensation for each semester of the project. If you are interested in leading a project team, contact us.
