Learning Enhancement Mini-Grants

The Office of Undergraduate Studies and the Center for Teaching Excellence are pleased to sponsor the Learning Enhancement Mini-Grant program for the 2013-2014 academic year. 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. Successful applicants will receive $6,000 in recognition of their contributions to improving undergraduate learning. Up to ten awards will be given. Funds may be supplemented with matching departmental or college funds. Funds may be used to support salaries (e.g., staff, graduate students, faculty summer support), operating expenses, or other instructional related costs. The funds many not be used for extensive travel, course buyouts during the regular academic year, or expenses that are considered routine obligations of the applicant's department or program. Improvements to courses that have previously received support from the Office of Undergraduate Studies or the Provost Office (e.g. I-Series courses and Blended Learning Courses) are not eligible for this program. We have defined three areas as priority for funding. Ideas and initiatives that do not fall within the priority areas can be submitted via the "Other" category.
