Dr. Priya Kurup, clinical assistant professor within the Educational Administration and Human Resource Department at Texas A&M, was honored as a 2013 Service Learning Faculty Fellow. Kurup was the only faculty in the College of Education and Human Development who received the fellowship.

The program is a partnership between the Center for Teaching Excellence, the Office of the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies and the Department of Student Activities Leadership and Service Center.

Service-Learning is a form of experimental education in which students engage in activities that address human and community needs together with structured opportunities for reflection. In this yearlong service-learning faculty development program, Dr. Kurup was afforded the opportunity to integrate service learning into her teaching, research and public service.

“As a 2013 Service-Learning Faculty Fellow, I implemented innovative service learning concepts in a project management course in the Technology Management undergraduate program,” said Kurup. “Students are learning beyond the classroom and developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills that benefit our local communities. This faculty fellows program has greatly enriched my course and student learning experiences."

Kurup will continue to use service learning to provide high-impact learning experiences to her current and future students.
