The Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award honors faculty who have shown outstanding leadership in integrating community and public service into their curricula. Public service is a core element of Indiana University’s mission and is a significant part of the university’s commitment to the well-being of the state of Indiana.
Recipients of this recognition create learning opportunities that go beyond the classroom, engaging students in real world experiences and hands on engagements within their local communities. The achievements of these awardees are measured in part by the tremendous successes of the many students and the communities they serve.
This award is named after Indiana University President Emeritus Thomas Ehrlich, who led the university from 1987 to 1994. The award recipient becomes IU’s nominee for the national Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award the following year.
Awardees are chosen from nominations. Please refer to the nomination page for information on the submission process and required documentation.
