The Instructional Improvement Committee (IIC) encourages, through monetary grants, the application of existing knowledge to specific teaching situations to improve the quality of instruction at BHSU.
Any full-time faculty member, full-time adjunct faculty, or other full-time staff member engaged in student instruction may apply for grant funds administered by the committee. Grant funding will normally be available up to a maximum of $1,500 per project.
Priority will be given to projects that will have a broad-based, visible, continuing impact of instruction across faculty members and/or disciplines. Funds are available for development of materials and methods to improve teaching and learning, equipment to enhance teaching and learning, travel to conferences or workshops which enhance teaching and learning, and bringing consulting lecturers and teaching specialists to campus to offer presentations to and/or with faculty and teaching-support staff at BHSU.
Faculty members who apply for grants to support travel to a conference or workshop are limited to receiving no more than one grant every four years. In the other categories, priority will be given to those who have not received an IIC grant in the last academic year.
Proposals for grant funding will be reviewed by the IIC on a monthly basis. Proposals are being accepted until September 19 for consideration at the next meeting. Proposals must consist of the proposal and budget outlines as specified on the IIC web page.
PLEASE NOTE: Proposals are accepted electronically as an attachment to an e-mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, a signed original must also be submitted to the Grants Office, Unit 9504, or delivered to Woodburn Hall 213.
