The Community Engaged Scholar honor is one of five academic recognitions given to graduating students at UNC Asheville. It provides the opportunity for students to become deeply involved in service-learning in Asheville and Western North Carolina - and receive recognition for their efforts. Students can apply to be a Community Engaged Scholar once they have completed 6 credit hours in service-learning designated courses. We recommend sharing information about this distinction whether or not your course is a SL designated course. For more information on CES visit this link.
All students doing a Community Engaged Scholar project are required to work with a Faculty Advisor. The role of a faculty advisor is to assist the student in completing their Public Service Project proposal, meet regularly with the student over the course of their project, to review the student's final paper, and serve as a general mentor and resource.
