Faculty teaching ICC themes/perspectives courses during the 2015-16 academic year are invited to apply for collaborative mini-grants. The purpose of the grants is to support faculty in working on common assignments or other course-related experiences that would link students across their courses by interacting together in a meaningful way.  Mini-grants may be awarded for either spring 2015 or summer 2015 development work.

The Office of the Provost and Center for Faculty Excellence are pleased to co-sponsor a series of informal gatherings for faculty to talk about courses they are teaching in each of the six ICC themes. Participants should come prepared to talk for 2 minutes about what they are doing to address the theme and also to hear how their colleagues are integrating the theme into courses. We anticipate mutual learning among faculty members that will enrich every ICC course. Faculty who aren’t yet teaching in a particular theme are also welcome to attend and gain insight into possibilities for their own courses. We encourage you to drop in for a few minutes before or after class or stay the entire time as your schedule allows. Refreshments will be provided.
