Teaching Enhancement Grants

The Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence (CTLE) is pleased to announce that grants of up to $1,800 are available to full-time faculty interested in enhancing their teaching skills. This year the CTLE will be awarding up to six Teaching Enhancement Grants.

The grants can be used for a variety of pedagogical and/or assessment purposes. Preference may be given to those proposals that address Eloquentia Perfecta Level II student learning outcomes. Teaching materials/equipment/tablets purchased with grant funding reside in the faculty member’s department.

  • Proposal Guidelines plus or minus

    Proposals should not exceed 2 pages and must include the following information:

    • Clear purpose of the grant;
    • Positive impact that the grant will have on teaching (address specific pedagogy and exact courses affected);
    • Positive impact that the grant will have on precise student learning outcomes (address the collection of evidence and use of the evidence to improve teaching of the exact courses affected);
    • A course syllabus if designing or redesigning a course;
    • An explicit and realistic timeline normally running no later than December 31, 2017;
    • A specific budget. Please submit appropriate documentation if attending a conference or purchasing materials; applications without budget documentation to substantiate expenses cannot be considered. Grants cover up to $1,800 - please explain how you will pay for additional expenses if your activity exceeds $1,800;
    • Letter of support from Department Chair or College Dean.

    Proposals will be reviewed by a faculty subcommittee of the CTLE Advisory Group.  Please note that grant funding cannot be used for the replacement of equipment funded by previous years' grants.

    All applicants will be notified in December 2016.  Upon completion of the grant activity, successful applicants must submit a final report including expenses to Charles Kratz, Dean of the Library & Information Fluency. Grant recipients will be asked to do a workshop on their project for the CTLE in the future.

    Please submit applications via campus mail to:
