Campus Compact has selected ten professors from a pool of 72 nominations to be honored as finalists for the 2004 Thomas Ehrlich Faculty Award for Service-Learning. They were chosen as finalists for their important work on campus, connecting community service to their coursework, and promoting service-learning nationally.

This year?s finalists represent a wide range of institutional types and sizes, and have incorporated service-learning into many different disciplines. The finalists are: Karen Bojar, Community College of Philadelphia, John Eby, Messiah College, Joan Gluch, University of Pennsylvania, Marlene Groomes, Miami Dade Community College, Pamela Kiser, Elon University, Margarita Lenk, Colorado State University, Marybeth Lima, Louisiana State University, David Scobey, University of Michigan, Dayle Smith, University of San Francisco, and Mark Warren, Harvard University.

This is Campus Compact’s tenth year honoring service-learning faculty through the Thomas Ehrlich Award. Campus Compact annually honors faculty members for innovations in engaged scholarship that integrate service into the curriculum and for efforts to institutionalize service-learning at their college or university. The award is named in honor of Thomas Ehrlich, past chair of the Campus Compact executive committee, President Emeritus of Indiana University, and currently a senior scholar at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.

The finalists will be recognized at the Educators for Community Engagement National Gathering in Berea, Kentucky, June 18-20, 2004. More information o
