2014-2015 QEP Funded Projects

Explore Activities Grant

This grant was designed to encourage conversation and collaboration among faculty, staff and students regarding the E^3 Initiative. It sought to generate excitement and enthusiasm in the possibilities for APSU to provide students with opportunities that transform perspective while engaging in the practical application of learning. These grants were small in scope and duration and were open to faculty, staff and students. They were seen as seed money for activities that could lead to potential and/or existing high-impact practices.
