Social Accountability Lab for Learning and Teaching (SALLT)

The Department of Community Health & Epidemiology (CH&E) and the Division of Social Accountability (DSA) in the College of Medicine are pleased to announce the launch of the Social Accountability Lab for Learning and Teaching (SALLT). The purpose of SALLT is to support College of Medicine undergraduate, graduate students and residents’ meaningful engagement in their own learning and their contribution to others’ learning, to involve students in creative and innovative learning about social accountability, and to provide opportunities for community engagement and advocacy training.

SALLT is intended to be a catalyst for passionate students and committed ‘change-makers’ in order to build social accountability ‘champions’ in the College of Medicine. SALLT offers experiential learning opportunities to put social accountability theory into practice. Thus, this fund is geared toward students who desire to build their community engagement, leadership and advocacy skills and are willing to share and contribute to future students’ learning.  Please see the guidelines and application below for more information.

The next deadline for applications will be in March 2020.
