Faculty members are invited to submit proposals for curriculum development grants that will facilitate students participating in course work relevant to community engagement. We are especially interested in curriculum development that links students with the community in ways related to this year’s University Theme. Preference will be given to curriculum development designed to solve real problems; address societal challenges; and/or provide service to the regional community. Projects may involve classes, workshops, events and/or research or creative projects. Cross-disciplinary grants are encouraged.
