The University of Massachusetts Amherst

2022 PEP Faculty Fellowship Information Session

Monday, October 25, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Zoom

Do you want to share your research with audiences beyond the academy, write an effective op-ed or policy brief, testify before Congress, or work with community and professional groups?

The Public Engagement Project invites applications from UMass research active faculty and lecturers for the Public Engagement Faculty Fellowship.

As a Public Engagement Faculty Fellow, you’ll develop a fellowship plan tailored to your expertise and aspirations for reaching broader publics. You will receive technical training in communicating with non-academic audiences, cultivate networks to reach those publics, and workshop your policy brief, blog, op-ed piece, or other public engagement product(s). 

Faculty Fellows will meet twice per month during the 2022 spring semester, attending panels and skill-building workshops offered by faculty, communications experts from University Relations, and others experienced with public engagement. Fellows will also have the opportunity to work in small groups and receive peer mentoring tailored to their engagement plan, as well as to present their research to Massachusetts lawmakers.
