Integrated Learning and Community Partnership Office (ILCPO)
The goal of the Integrated Learning and Community Partnership Office (ILCPO) is to further develop the volume, value and impact of mutually beneficial community partnerships for research, teaching, learning, and service and to enhance the metropolitan vision as a defining dimension of UM-Dearborn.
ILCPO seeks to support and deepen the quality of teaching and learning on our campus, to inspire innovative pedagogy and research, enrich professional preparation and catalyze our metropolitan mission. At the same time, the organizations and businesses that are transforming the region will have opportunities to leverage the intellectual resources of the faculty, work with our capable students, and employ our knowledgeable, creative graduates.
Seed grant funding supports academic service learning, innovative teaching practices and community-based research. These seed grants represent an important step toward eliminating barriers that have thwarted UM-Dearborn faculty from doing this kind of work in the past. Submitted proposals will be vetted by a faculty review committee and the resources, provided by the Office of Academic Affairs, will be managed out of the ILCPO. Information pertaining to purpose, eligibility criteria, terms and criteria for the awards, due dates and application materials can be found on the Seed Grants and Awards page.
We’ve moved! The ILCPO has recently moved into our new office space on the first floor of the Mardigian Library. Our office is located in the northwestern corner and contains our staff as well as meeting and collaborative space. Feel free to stop by!
