Summer Grants for Faculty Research are intended to support post-terminal degree scholarly endeavors for full-time continuing Ithaca College faculty and faculty regularly employed on at least a half-time basis. Awards provide $3,350 in compensation for eight weeks or full-time research. Proposals are due in the Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center, by Monday, February 16. Guidelines and application form may be found at www.ithaca.edu/cfe/research/summer_grants.

The Center for Faculty Excellence is pleased to announce a call for proposals for its Faculty-in-Residence program in the academic year, 2015-2016.  The program will bring together 3 to 5 faculty members who have proposed a program of study, reflection, planning, and action related to some aspect of faculty excellence and development.  Successful proposals will link faculty interests to Ithaca College initiatives and have a potential impact beyond the faculty member’s own discipline or department.   Proposals are especially welcome that address scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL), diversity, undergraduate scholarship, research, and creative inquiry, interdisciplinary, career development, and digital humanities. Each Resident will work on a proposed project and meet regularly with the other Residents and CFE Director for discussion, planning, and collaboration.
