Development Opportunities

Integration of Undergraduate Research into the Curriculum
Two Tracks: Full Proposals and Supplement to Funded Project.

Full Proposal Program Description
Stipends will be provided to faculty members to support the development of new courses and/or revision of existing courses to include a substantial undergraduate research, scholarly, or creative component. The expected outcome is submission of a course revision or new course proposal to the College Senate Curriculum Committee and teaching the course. This program is not intended to support minor revisions to courses that already include a research component. Lower-level and upper-level courses are eligible and courses targeting specific student audiences (e.g, non-majors, pre-majors, majors) are acceptable. Awards of between $750 and $1000 will be made to support faculty during the summer 2014. It is expected that the faculty receiving awards will complete their project by August 25, 2014.

This program is not intended to support minor revisions to seminar courses that already have a research requirement. Lower-level and upper-level courses are eligible.

Deadline for proposals: May 14, 2014

Supplemental Program Description

Stipends will be provided to faculty members to support the modification or refinement of courses developed with funding from the Integrating Undergraduate Research into the Curriculum program. The course for which supplemental funding is being requested must have been taught a minimum of two times. The expected outcome from a Supplement is a revised course syllabus, clearer articulation of the undergraduate research/creative activity and/or materials provided to students to guide them in completing the research/creative component, and teaching the course at least once in the next 2-3 semesters. Depending on the activities proposed and time involved in refining the course, the stipend amount of Supplements will range from $350-500. Notification will be made within 1-2 weeks of submission.

Deadline for proposals: Open
