Each year, the Institute for Leadership & Purpose welcomes proposals from faculty for integrated projects that expand their passions and ideas into and beyond their classrooms and subject areas. In 2020-2021 the Fellowship program will be piloted by three projects the administration has chosen to fund and support. In future years we plan to expand to four or five projects annually.
Institute fellows have one summer and the following school year to grow their projects from idea to implementation. The Institute supports the implementation of successful projects into the Calvert School program. The Institute serves as an innovation lab for faculty and is grounded in the philosophy that encouraging creativity, innovation, and leadership amongst teachers is central to providing a purposeful education for students that prioritizes transformative head, hand, and heart learning. Best practices in project-based learning are the foundational piece of this program.
