Call for RASI Proposals

The Center for Teaching and Learning's goals to strengthen student retention and revitalize faculty development call for faculty-initiated and -developed projects that make substantial changes in pedagogy or delivery methods for the promotion of student retention and success. The Center for Teaching and Learning will provide financial incentive and academic support for faculty to revitalize high-enrolled courses which traditionally have had low success rates. Course revitalization will take place Spring/Summer 2016 and piloted Fall 2016 or Spring 2017. Courses with lower enrollment will also be considered for funding. Participation is open to all full-time faculty.
