For nearly 20 years, the Academic and Community Engaged Faculty Fellowship has supported faculty at Wake Forest University through the development of service-learning courses for undergraduate and graduate students. Many of Wake Forest’s most engaged teachers have emerged from the ACE fellows program over its history. This legacy serves as the underpinning to the 2016 ACE Fellows class.

The ACE Fellows program ethically promotes and sustains community-engaged teaching, research, and scholarship through the development of faculty as public intellectuals connecting their work with community needs and projects. ACE Fellows are faculty who have already demonstrated an interest in engaged research, scholarship, or teaching and are interested in further developing this interest alongside a peer cohort. ACE Fellows commit to two years in the program, developing a community-facing project congruent with their research, scholarship, and/or teaching by the conclusion of the fellowship.
