Faculty and Staff Grants
In order to promote student engagement beyond the classroom, CIEL is offering three
different grants to enable the development of new and revised programs, as well as
collaboration between departments, offices, academic units, and student affairs.
Priority will be given to grant applications that align with the university’s quality
enhancement plan (Experience by Design) goals and/or target populations. Those goals
include engaging more students in experiences beyond the classroom and encouraging
students to reflect on their experiences. Target populations include Pell-grant eligible,
transfer, underrepresented minority, and male students.
Integrative and Experiential Learning Community of Practice Grants
Up to $5000 to develop or revise a course or program that provides students with the
opportunity to engage in beyond the classroom experiences.
Grantees participate in a community of practice to provide and receive support while
completing their grant project, discuss practices of integrative and experiential
learning, and share how faculty and staff in the CoP support students in their respective
programs and departments.
Beyond the Classroom Departmental and Unit Grants
Up to $3000 to build a new program, or enhance an existing one, that engages students beyond the classroom and contributes to departmental or unit learning outcomes.
Rolling Beyond the Classroom Grants
Up to $300 to create one time beyond the classroom experiences for students in courses
or programs, e.g. tickets to a museum, event, transportation, funding for a speaker.
