Grants for Teaching Assistants for Transformational Learning Classes

Are you thinking about using transformational service-learning in your class for Spring semester, but feel that you would need some extra help in incorporating it into your class?

The Mansfield Institute is happy to announce that we are able to provide faculty members with teaching assistants to give added support!  Full-time and part-time faculty from across Roosevelt University are invited to submit proposals to hire an undergraduate or graduate student who would be able to provide 8 hours of support each week during the semester.  Students receive a $2,000 scholarship to be applied toward their Spring 2012 tuition as compensation for their work.

Specifically, teaching assistants can help faculty members with the transformational service-learning component of their class by working with the Mansfield Institute to help students find community placements, coordinating with community partners, assisting with off-site travel of visits of community partners to campus, and evaluating students' service-learning assignments with appropriate guidance and supervision.

Click here to learn more and to download the brief application!  Applications are due no later than November 1, 2011.  Contact Steve Meyers at with any questions or for any assistance that you may need.
