Provost Innovation Fund - Call for Proposals

The 2017-2018 Provost Innovation Fund (PIF) Call for Proposals is focused on supporting innovative and collaborative faculty-led initiatives that employ interdisciplinary approaches to enhance teaching and learning in the classroom, laboratory, field and/or studio. Proposals should demonstrate clear linkage to the College’s Agenda for Distinction.   


The 2017-2018 grant program is open to all levels and types of interdisciplinary approaches, including but not limited to faculty collaborations, new program exploration, interdisciplinary seminar development, classroom/studio/lab enhancements and short-term study abroad proposals. All faculty applying for projects will need to demonstrate at least inter-Departmental level impact for their proposal. Priority will be given to proposals that emphasize fully interdepartmental or inter-School collaborations. In addition, collaborations between faculty and campus offices such as the McQuade Library, Global Education Office, the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and other Centers are encouraged.
