diverse group of peopleAll full-time CAS faculty are invited to submit proposals for "Building a Multicultural Curriculum" grants.

The goal of these awards is to encourage and support faculty in developing new courses or revising existing classes in order to expand the College’s offerings that will support students’ diversity awareness and build their multicultural competence. Courses should include content related to various dimensions of identity such as, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, (dis)ability, socioeconomic class and/or age as well as their intersections.

Three awards are available per academic year; $2500 will be awarded for each as a support account to be expended by the end of September 2022. Access a full summary of the "Building a Multicultural Curriculum Grants" here.

Funding may be used for instruction-related costs such as:

  • Purchase and development of instructional materials
  • Conference and workshops connected to the proposed course
  • Student assistants
  • Summer salary

  • Name
