Curricular Redesign Grant

A page within Research & Sponsored Programs

Curricular Redesign Grants support groups of instructors to develop or redesign and implement curricula and teaching practices in academic programs. The grant funds projects that involve significant revisions intended to address challenging learning goals, student learning problems, and/or achievement gaps. The grant does not fund planning activities such as needs assessment or activities to determine whether the project is viable. Any planning activities should take place prior to submitting the proposal. 

Priority will be given to proposals that articulate a clear connection to one of the three components of UWL’s Strategic Plan that have clear potential links to curriculum:  Increasing Community Engagement; Achieving Excellence through Equity and Diversity; and/or Advancing Transformational Education. Of particular interest to reviewers would be proposals with an emphasis on a high-impact practice.


Proposals must be submitted via the Canvas grant submission course by noon on the second Friday in February (next deadline: February 14, 2025 by noon).
