Proposals should be no more than 1-2 pages and should outline the problem or topic to be addressed, the format and time period for completion of the proposed work, participants who would be involved, the expected time commitment of those involved, and the hoped-for outcomes. Proposals must include a detailed budget, including the number of participants, number of days of activity, and any additional expenses. Faculty in working groups that meet between June 1st and August 15th are eligible for stipends of $200/day. A written report will be expected from each summer working group by September 1st.
The dean’s office will review proposals in terms of the potential to strengthen curriculum and pedagogy at the college and in departments and programs. We will also consider the costs of proposed projects in the context of limited availability of resources and may suggest alternative ways of approaching the issues that the proposal addresses.
