Faculty Development Grant Proposal

    1. Student Learning Assessment

      1b. Department development grants

Program Strategy 1b. Three department development grants (competitive) across the life of the grant. We expect 4 serious proposals each year; yielding two grants/year.
Evaluation Activities The RFP for the department development grants will require the proposer to provide a process of evaluation for her/his project. Minimum requirements for proposal acceptance will be project evaluation plans that specifically examine the impact of the project on student learning. The impact of the grants will be measured by looking at the ways the grant changed the department's assessment program, its regular assessment reports, and the actions taken based upon the results of the assessment data generated.
Specific Intended Outcomes This goal will have been met when:
1. The selected departments move to a higher level on the Higher Learning Commission's Levels of Implementation.
2. Departments receiving grants share their progress with the community and serve as mentors to other departments.
3. The progress generated with 1A and 1B help foster a campus wide culture of assessment.
