The Teaching and Learning Center supports Program Improvement Grants of up to $2500 for faculty to “close the loop” on their outcomes assessment findings in order to strengthen student learning. Awarded annually, Program Improvement Grants may be proposed to improve aspects of the following:
• an undergraduate major
• one or a set of general education courses
• a graduate program
Program Improvement Grants may be used to revise curriculum, develop assignments within the curriculum that better support program outcomes, and/or engage in faculty development in such a way that will directly contribute to student learning. Proposals that scaffold student skills in written communications, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and information literacy will be favored.
