Over the past four years, the Chancellor’s Faculty Research Celebration has focused on UMass Boston’s Carnegie Community-Engaged ranking. The 2016 celebration, “The Teaching Soul: Research and Mentoring,” showcases faculty members working with students supported by the Beacons Student Success Fellowship Program. The fellowship provides UMass Boston students with financial support for unpaid experiential learning activities such as internships, service learning, civic engagement projects, and mentored research experiences in the summer.

Faculty will describe their research and the value in research and learning that students gain from their experience as participants, researchers, and learners. Summer project participating students, under the auspices of the research and instructional faculty, will describe their experience as a learner, researcher, and/or mentee. The participants will also talk about the future of this type of learning and teaching community.
