Grants are available to support a variety of development and enrichment activities related to teaching, professional development, leadership development and collaboration. We prioritize funding that benefits teaching and pedagogy, involves community partners, or engages faculty in developing new skills and capacities.
Full-time faculty on the tenure-line, on consecutive term appointments, and on multiple-year visiting appointments
Up to $1,500 per grant
Applications accepted on a rolling basis, and are considered as long as funds are available.
To Apply, please provide via email:
Faculty are not required to share their plans for enrichment and development with their department chair or Dean; however, we expect that faculty will exhaust funding available to them through departmental and college/school sources, before applying for a faculty development and enrichment grant.
