The NAC&U Faculty Ambassadors have opened the Call for Submissions for the Collaboration, Growth and Innovation (CGI) Grant Program which is designed to facilitate connections across NAC&U institutions by funding planning projects in the areas of teaching, service, research, and scholarship.
Proposals for the CGI Grant Program must include faculty, administrators, or staff from two or more NAC&U institutions from either the same or different disciplines. The purpose of the CGI grants is to support the planning and development, and not the implementation, of collaborative projects.
Last year three projects spanning four institutions were funded. These included a collaboration between Ohio Northern University and Belmont University on a student-run public relations firm video training series; a project from Ohio Northern University and Pacific Lutheran University that utilized pedagogical resources and tools to teach about the intersections of technology, climate change, and religion and organize related interdisciplinary, collaborative research projects; and the expansion and improvement of Interprofessional Education at Nazareth College and the University of Evansville.
The 2019 application deadline is Friday, February 1, 2019. Recipients will be notified in early March.
