The University of Massachusetts Amherst

Public Engagement Faculty Fellowship

Faculty Fellows meet twice per month, attending panels and skill-building workshops offered by faculty, communication experts from University Relations, and others experienced with public engagement. Fellows also work in small groups and receive peer mentoring tailored to their engagement plan, and are given the opportunity to present their research to Massachusetts lawmakers.
