The Office of the Provost has named Mark Lusk, Ed.D., professor of social work, and Amy Wagler, Ph.D., associate professor of mathematical sciences, as The University of Texas at El Paso’s 2016-17 Faculty Fellows for the Center for Civic Engagement (CCE).
Lusk and Wagler will collaborate with the CCE in continuing to develop a faculty community of practice around community-engaged scholarship, service learning and community-based research. They bring to their positions broad knowledge and experience in community-engaged scholarship and have already demonstrated leadership in expanding the awareness, knowledge and engaged practices of their staff and faculty colleagues on campus.
The Provost’s Administrative Faculty Fellow positions are intended to provide faculty members with leadership and administrative experience, while offering faculty perspective, guidance and vision to the administrative offices that they serve. Faculty fellows work closely with program directors on projects that help those units address UTEP’s mission and goals.
The mission of UTEP’s Center for Civic Engagement is to engage faculty and students in the community through community-based teaching and learning in order to enhance student learning, promote civic engagement and actively improve the El Paso-Juárez region.
