Richard Kiely currently serves as the Director of Engaged Learning and Research at Cornell University. In 2002, he received his PhD from Cornell University, and in 2005 was recognized nationally as a John Glenn Scholar in Service-Learning for his longitudinal research that led to the development of a transformative service-learning model. His research focuses primarily on institutional models that foster sustainable campus-community partnerships, as well as student learning and faculty development in engaged learning and research.
A certificate of completion will be offered to those who attend two of the three service-learning sessions (first session was held on 9/18/13 and the second was held on 10/15/13). The series is intended to prepare IC faculty for the May 2014 CFE Excellence Institute on Service-Learning.
