About

Spearheaded by a Furman Advantage initiative in 2016, the Collaborative for Community-Engaged Learning (CEL) builds upon Furman’s legacy of community partnerships. The university is dedicated to deeply understanding and addressing community challenges, identifying opportunities for collaboration, and providing formative experiences for students through research opportunities.

Student Opportunities

CEL gives students opportunities to participate in the many aspects of community engagement. Our student fellows work on community-based participatory research projects, plan and attend community-based events, work closely with the multidisciplinary faculty affiliates, and assist in developing and implementing CEL’s strategic goals.

We offer paid fellowships for students during the summer and academic year. Interested in pursuing a student fellowship with us?
