Curriculum or pedagogy grants support faculty teams as they develop and implement strategies to infuse the curriculum and pedagogies of the University with the best practices related to diversity, equity, and inclusion broadly defined. Projects may include developing inclusive teaching practices that foster success for students of all academic, social, experiential backgrounds, developing materials for a course, set of courses, or program to advance best practices in pedagogy, new course materials or content.
Grants will be awarded to teams of 2 or more faculty. Interdisciplinary teams are encouraged to apply. Each team member will receive a stipend of $1,000 and each team must propose a detailed project budget to cover related expenses. The project budget can be used at the team’s discretion; these funds are intended to purchase relevant resources and to cover team meeting expenses (meals, etc.). The team’s project funds are available only during the budget-year of the project. Participants will receive half of the stipend award ($500) upon selection and the second half upon completion of the team’s final report.
Application for these funds should be made to the University Enrichment Committee in care of Dean of Faculty, Julie Christoph, through the online form. The application should include:
1. Outline of the curricular or pedagogical issue
2. Description of the plan of action
3. Explanation of how effectiveness will be measured and evaluated
4. Working timeline of project
5. Itemized budget for the estimated costs of required resources
Applications for Curriculum and Pedagogy Grants to Advance Inclusion, Diversity and Equity are due by November 1st or April 1st.
For your final report, due at the end of the grant period, please be prepared to share the teaching materials developed in support of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
