Proposals sought for learning outcomes assessment grants

February 10, 2011

The Office of the Provost is accepting proposals for its second year of learning outcomes assessment grants. The grants are for faculty focused on confirming and improving student learning through activities such as developing/purchasing assessment tools such as exams and surveys, conducting focus groups, analyzing assessment results or developing an assessment plan.
The goal is to support  five to 15 academic programs across campus with the grant money. Proposals will be reviewed based on the:

* Purpose of the project and its connection to programmatic assessment activities.
* Impact and use of the results from the project.
* Project’s budget and timeline.

Special consideration might be given to cross-disciplinary projects and projects with matching funds.

The application form is available as a PDF file. Applications should be mailed to the contact person listed for the applicant's college as part of the application form.

Deadline to submit grant proposals is March 2. Grant activities should be completed by March 2, 2012. Grant winners will be asked to share the results of their project with the broader campus community.
