    Faculty Changemaker Curricular Development Fund

    Check back for launch of Faculty Changemaker Curricular Development Fund applications in academic year 2020-21.

    Faculty Changemaker Curricular Development Grants support curricular development that aligns with Innovation at CC’s Changemaker Programming. The Fund may be used to support changemaking curricular development, as well as support visitors, field trips, etc., that allow students to practice and engage with real-world problem-solving. This fund is not intended to finance research but is intended to support curriculum that moves theory into practice and encourages faculty to not only investigate problems but to engage in solutions alongside students.
