2017 AEA Grant Recipients

2017 AEA Grant Recipients


The Office for Academic Excellence and Assessment is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 Faculty Development Grants for the Assessment of Student Learning/Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.  The AEA Development Grant Program provides "seed" money for award recipients' work in its early stages that advances the assessment of student learning or develops a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project.   

During 2017-2018, the Development Grant projects will be grouped thematically and will be presented during 90-minute lunches.  The luncheon series is designed to familiarize the campus with the grant recipients, their project and 2018 grant funding and application process.
