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.
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 January and June 2024. $30,000 has been allocated for the Fall 2023 funding cycle.
The deadline for applications with the appropriate approvals is by the end of the day, Monday, October 2, 2023. 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. The Fall 2023 JIT Funding Program is closed.
The Professional Development Incentive is a form of compensation that supports and enables faculty members to improve their teaching and their students' learning.
