The Faculty Development Office in the Center for Teaching and Learning annually funds an award of up to $5,000 for a project that supports innovations in teaching at the program level. Projects focused primarily on the development of a single course by a single professor are ineligible for this grant.

Use the online application form below to submit proposals for Fiscal Year 2016 (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016).

Eligibility: This is a program grant and is therefore awarded to a department/program or to a cross-disciplinary collaboration, not to an individual. The Primary Investigator (PI) must be a tenured or tenure-track full-time faculty member in any department or college that reports directly to Academic Affairs. Faculty in the first or second year of a 3-year term may also apply as the PI on behalf of their respective departments. Administrators at the rank of Dean or above may not apply as the PI.

Proposal Guidelines: Each proposal must include the following:

  • Contact information for PI and Co-Investigators
  • Program/Department
  • Project Title
  • Project Abstract (100 words)
  • Full Project Description (500-750 words)
