Course Enhancement Funds
First-Year Seminar instructors have access to course enhancement funds, modest amounts that assist faculty in engaging students within and/or outside of the classroom, offering experiential opportunities, and exposing students to cultural events. Examples include taking students to plays or cultural events, hosting a dinner, arranging for a guest speaker, and more. Course enhancement funds are treated as reimbursements for pre-approved enhancement ideas. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
CAS Research in Teaching Initiative
The Research in Teaching Initiative offers faculty stipend support, course enhancement funds, and staff assistance to transform First-Year Seminars into laboratories for exploring the liberal arts. This program is open to full-time Art and Science faculty only who are teaching a First-Year Seminar. Please email Dean Armanda Lewis (email@example.com) with any questions.
