As former Carnegie Foundation President Ernest Boyer pointed out in the 1990 report, Scholarship Reconsidered, teaching is a scholarly endeavor, and faculty members' work as teachers should garner the same recognition and reward afforded to other forms of scholarship.  The Jacksonville University Scholar Program, following the model of The Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), seeks to support faculty activities that:

  • Foster significant and long-lasting student learning
  • Enhance the practice and profession of teaching
  • Develop ideas about teaching and learning that can be disseminated on campus and beyond
  • Reward and publicly recognize the scholarship of Jacksonville University faculty
