Improvement of Instruction Grants Proposals
The Office of Undergraduate Studies and the Center for Teaching Excellence are pleased to sponsor the Improvement of Instruction Grants (IIG) program. This program supports instructional changes that improve undergraduate teaching and learning. Individual faculty members, as well as departmental or interdisciplinary clusters, are invited to apply following an annual call for proposals. Grant funds may support salaries (e.g., staff, graduate students, summer support), operating expenses, or other necessary costs. Past awards have ranged from $1,000 to $10,000, including college and departmental support. The program does not fund purchases of equipment (e.g., computers), extensive travel, course buyouts during the regular academic year, or expenses that are considered routine obligations of the applicant’s department or program.
Grant recipients will offer timely progress reports on supported projects. CTE will distribute those reports to the campus.
Each year we define a limited number of areas that are a priority for funding. Ideas and initiatives that do not fall within the priority areas can be submitted via the "Other" category.
Currently there is no call for proposals to the campus. Check back for updates and subscribe to the CTE listserv.
