NEW COURSE CREATION GRANTS SUPPORTING GOAL II OF THE STRATEGIC PLAN
The Office of the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs has funds available for faculty to create new courses that support our institutional priorities around Goal II. Over the course of the 2013-2014 academic year, six mini-grants in the amount of $4,000 will be awarded to faculty members. Priority will be given this year to course proposals that focus on the topics of socioeconomic class/poverty and/or sexual orientation. All faculty are encouraged to apply. There is no deadline for submissions of proposals; they will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
Faculty members wishing to apply shall submit a brief (one or two page) proposal to the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs describing the course that will be developed. Once the proposal is approved, the sum of $1,000 will be distributed to the faculty member. An additional $3,000 will be distributed to the faculty member once the course is approved by Curriculum Committee. Finally, the course should be offered no later than the 2015-2016 academic year.
