Charles R. Bantz Chancellor's Community Fellowship
In recognition of the leadership and contributions of Charles R. Bantz to the campus and the community, IUPUI established in 2015 the Charles R. Bantz Chancellor’s Community Fellowship to support research that creates university-community partnerships that impact the community.

The goal of the Bantz Community Fellowship is to support community-engaged research and scholarly activities that specifically:

  1. reinforce and deepen campus-community engagement and research partnerships;
  2. leverage the knowledge, skills, and innovative talents of IUPUI faculty, students, and community partner(s) in a year-long scope of work that is of mutual value and interest;
  3. result in meaningful community impact.

The Bantz Community Fellowship is jointly supported by the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and the Office of Community Engagement, and is funded through charitable gifts and campus support.
