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 2013–14 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 2015–16 academic year.
