Three summer grants in the amount of $1,800 each are available for the integration of the experiences and perspectives of women into the curriculum. The grants are intended for use in the summer of 2013 by tenured or tenure-track faculty members who wish to pursue one of the following projects:
Proposals will be reviewed by selected members serving on the Academic Issues Subcommittee of the President's Commission on the Status of Women. Successful proposals have often incorporated innovative teaching techniques and integrated women's concerns with issues of race/ethnicity, class and sexual orientation. Priority will be given to courses that are developed or revised for the undergraduate curriculum and those that can be implemented within two years. Eligibility is limited to faculty who have not received a Curriculum Integration grant in the past four years.
Applications for this grant must include the following:
(1) the completed grant application form with the required signatures (when you submit the form, it will generate a cover sheet that includes signature lines for you, your chair, and your dean);
(2) a description of the project, including (a) the pedagogical theories that are driving the course development, course revision, or minor creation, (b) how the resulting course/minor will be an asset to the curriculum of your department, college, and the university, and (c) how the resulting course/minor incorporates innovation in teaching/learning;
(3) statement of goals and objectives for the summer effort you will use to develop/revise the course (the tentative goals and objectives for the course itself can also be included);
(4) a timeline for completion and implementation of the project, including the schedule of work to be done during the development phase (summer 2013) as well as an indication of when the course would be offered or the minor would be available;
(5) a tentative bibliography of materials relevant to the development and implementation of the course/minor, including materials on the theories and methods of curriculum integration (i. e. sources about the pedagogical foundation for your approach to integrating women into the curriculum);
(6) a curriculum vitae.
Applicants should send seven (7) completed grant proposals (original and six copies) to Dr. Samantha Cantrell, Office of Research Services, Box 124. The deadline for submission of proposals has been extended to Friday, March 22, 2013 by 4:30 pm. Please note: late applications will not be accepted or reviewed.
Grant recipients will be required to present the completed project at the Fall Commission meeting to be held at the beginning of the Fall 2013 semester. Recipients will also be required to provide the committee with a copy of the finished syllabus, course proposal, minor proposal, or revised minor no later than that fall meeting.
