Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning Funding

Enhancing Student Learning and Success in Persistently Challenging Courses Grants Program

This grants program aims to increase student success in persistently challenging courses — that is, courses with high rates of grades of D, F, and withdrawals (W), and courses with equity gaps. The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning will support you in this work through financial support, coaching, collaboration, professional development, and/or other assistance. 

Timme Grants Program

The Timme Grants Program is now accepting applications from all faculty – non-tenure track, tenure-track, and tenured – for support for professional development activities (e.g., conferences, certification programs, symposia, short courses) that occur between July and December 2024. $37,000 has been allocated for the Spring 2024 funding cycle.

The deadline for applications with the appropriate approvals is by the end of the day, Monday, February 12, 2024. More information about the Timme Grants Program, along with the application and review criteria, is here.

The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning and the Timme Grants Program Review Committee are happy to announce the continuation of the Just-in-Time (JIT) Funding Program that began in Spring 2023.
