Civil liberties grant and community engagement

Are you teaching a course that is engaged in civil liberties research and/or projects? If so, there are grant monies available for this type of community-engaged work. There are a wide range of projects that cross many academic disciplines that can be categorized as civil liberties -- to include, in addition to the traditional First Amendment protections, topics such as a right to privacy, equal protection/due process, and those Amendments associated with criminal justice and procedure. Dr. James Szymalak (Political Science/Pub Admin) would like to work with instructors to identify how their project and/or research might include a study of civil liberties. Please contact James Szymalak to identify if your community-engaged project can be connected to the study of Civil Liberties. There are $1,000 grants available for this work.

Your civil liberties project may also qualify your course/course section for the optional Community Engaged Learning designation. Instructors who submit a proposal before February 1, 2022 are also eligible for a one-time $500 stipend from the UWL Foundation. Please contact Lisa Klein for additional information.
