The University of Scranton is one of the 28 Jesuit institutions of higher education located in the United States. Committed to community engagement and the development of Ignatian educators, a Community-Based Learning (CBL) Faculty Fellows Program was implemented academic year 2022-2023. The Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm and the Engagement of Hope framework were used as models to develop, implement, and assess a CBL faculty development program. Program activities were designed to build faculty skills, capacities, and their identity as community-engaged practitioners. Lessons learned through program assessment on the impact on faculty’s transformation to Ignatian educators and their ability to imagine new possibilities and a hope-filled future through community-engaged work are discussed. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the ongoing discussion on best practices to engage faculty in the use of Ignatian pedagogy at Jesuit universities using a CBL Faculty Fellows Program.
