Collaboration, Growth, and Innovation (CGI) Grant Program

The New American Colleges & Universities Collaboration, Growth, and Innovation (CGI) Grant Program

Deadline has been extended to February 15, 2019.

The New American Colleges & Universities (NAC&U) seek to encourage and facilitate cross-institutional collaborative projects that involve NAC&U faculty, administrators, staff, and students. The Collaboration, Growth and Innovation (CGI) Grant Program is designed to facilitate connections across member institutions and to seed collaborative projects in the areas of teaching, service, research, and scholarship. By leveraging the diverse strengths of our campuses, members can enhance the national profile of NAC&U through their activities.

Project Goals

The goals of the CGI Program are to:

  • Provide a forum for cross-institutional collaborations for faculty to pursue projects of common interest.
  • Increase the educational and collaborative benefits of NAC&U membership and extend these in specific ways to students enrolled at our campuses.
  • Enhance the national profile and mission of NAC&U by fostering climates and opportunities for cross-collaboration, research, publications, and grant writing
  • Create an environment for program growth and development of new initiatives (such as collaborative work in digital humanities) while offering opportunities for problem solving while advancing the broader mission of NAC&U either nationally or globally.
