Center for Teaching Excellence



Each year in partnership with other campus units the CTE offers teaching innovation grants designed to provide resources and support for faculty who are interested in exploring new and cutting-edge approaches in their teaching in ways that promise to enhance student learning. 

USCreativity Grants

Application Deadline:  October 12, 2018

The Center for Teaching Excellence is pleased to support the USCreativity initiative and invite full-time faculty to submit proposals for grants to fund teaching and learning innovations, curriculum and instructional development and creativity in experiential learning. Higher education can hone creativity by incorporating pedagogies that maximize opportunities for students to practice being inventive, and harvest and build upon the creativity that every student already possesses and uses (Gibson, 2010; Livingston, 2010). Apply
