Instructional Improvement Grants

The Office of Instructional Development provides funding to support undergraduate instructional improvement projects initiated by faculty or departments.

The Instructional Improvement Grant Program supports innovation, experimentation, and development of undergraduate curriculum and pedagogy. The goal of the program is to improve the quality of undergraduate education through pedagogical experimentation in areas such as student-centered learning, course design, diversity and inclusion in the classroom, and instructional technologies. The program especially values innovations that will have a lasting impact on undergraduate education.

Fall Quarter: Wednesday, October 28, 2015

Spring Quarter: Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Application Materials

Initial inquiries and requests for consultation can be directed to the Dr. Kumiko Haas, Director of Instructional Improvement Programs, at  The Faculty Committee on Instructional Improvement Programs reviews and approves all proposals.

The Office of Instructional Development also supports small-scale projects which improve or enrich existing undergraduate courses through the Mini-Grants Program.
