Teaching Development

Interdisciplinary Initiative Grant
Interdisciplinary Initiative Grant recipients will receive a stipend of $1000 to carry out projects that bring together faculty and students from two or more academic departments to achieve narrowly focused or event-specific goals or objectives. Grant stipends recognize the value of faculty time and expertise in developing new initiatives in teaching and learning.

Teaching and Learning External Development Grant
The purpose of the Teaching and Learning External Development Grants is to support transformational faculty development provided by recognized experts to enhance the overall quality of teaching and learning at Columbus State University. This will be accomplished by providing funding for event registration and travel, and by ensuring that the knowledge, skills, and insight gained will be disseminated to faculty peers on campus.

Faculty Writing Fellowship
The University Writing Center organizes and promotes the Faculty Writing Fellowship. The fellowship is intended to assist faculty with their efforts to use writing as a means of improving student engagement and learning in their courses.
