The Walker Center for Teaching and Learning sponsors two grant programs to encourage innovative teaching at UTC. The High-Impact Practices Grant can be used for projects up to $2,000. The new Classroom Mini-Grant offers a streamlined way to bring targeted elements into the classroom up to $300.
The faculty grants program provides funding to support activities of full-time faculty. There are three rounds each year, with deadlines on August 15 for fall semester activities, November 15 for spring semester activities, and April 1 for summer activities.
This grant program is for full-time faculty. Proposals are funded up to $1,500 for professional development activities and conference presentations, and up to $2,500 for research and creative activities. Proposals requiring international travel may be awarded up to $500 in additional funding.
Additional development opportunities are available through the Faculty Senate. These additional opportunities include faculty grants, sabbatical leave, and study leave.
