SOCIAL IMPACT PRACTICUMS
A Social Impact Practicum is a course-connected, project-based opportunity that allows faculty to integrate academic and experiential learning while addressing the needs of local community organizations in the Upper Valley. Staff at the Dartmouth Center for Service (DCS) have worked with over 25 community organizations to identify their needs and have created a bank of specific projects that link well to the skills and knowledge gained in Dartmouth courses. Faculty who include a Social Impact Practicum in their course receive several layers of support, including:
- $2,000+ faculty stipend to support time on teaching and learning
- Social Impact Learning Fellow to help facilitate community partnership development, logistics, and reflection activities
- Private consultation and access to 85+ projects to determine the best Social Impact Practicum for your course
- Dedicated faculty-community partner liaison at Dartmouth's Center for Service to coordinate SIP communication
- Ongoing support from DCAL, Instructional Design, and other on-campus partners, as needed
