EPIC programs are successful at increasing community engagement efforts by universities because they take the increased administration load off of faculty. To do that, programs develop resources for faculty. Here are a few examples.
Guide for Faculty
Some faculty are new to community engagement. This resource from Indiana University helps faculty learn about the program’s process, goals, and values while encouraging them to participate. Download the example here.
Insert for Syllabus
Although the EPIC Model does not require faculty to change their curriculum in any major way, sometimes faculty want to change their syllabus. Indiana University provides their faculty a template syllabus insert. Download the example here.
Student Photo Release
Photo releases for students and community members are one of those administrative details that are hard to track. The University of Washington has an example photo release to try and make that easier. Download the example here.
