McDaniel College has received a $1.75 million gift from Charles A. Boehlke, Jr., a 1978 alumnus of the college and current member of the McDaniel Board of Trustees, to establish the Charles A. Boehlke, Jr., Engaged Faculty Fellows program.
The fellowships are to be given annually to up to five McDaniel faculty members who provide strong mentorship and experiential learning opportunities to students, especially within the areas of independent student research, community-supported learning, internship support and study-away experiences.
According to McDaniel Provost Julia Jasken, “The Charles A. Boehlke, Jr., Engaged Faculty Fellow awards celebrate the many ways our faculty support students outside the classroom. Strong mentorship and quality experiential learning opportunities are two hallmarks of a McDaniel College education. We are grateful for this gift that gives us the opportunity to honor some of our most engaged faculty.”
