Faculty Development Mini-Grant Program
The Transform Mid-Atlantic Faculty Development Mini-Grant program supports development of member faculty in order to enhance student learning and engagement.
Full or PT faculty from Transform Mid-Atlantic member institutions, cross-disciplinary teams, or collaborative teams of faculty from two or more institutions may apply for up to $2,000 to support a program consistent with the goals of the mini-grant program and Transform Mid-Atlantic's mission. While requests from individual faculty to inaugurate an innovative partnership or initiative may be considered, preference will be given to teams initiating faculty development, including inter-institutional teams and inter-disciplinary teams.
These grant funds support faculty development opportunities like workshops and institutes that ultimately support students’ community-engaged learning.
These grant funds can support requests from individual institutions or collaborations between and among multiple educational institutions.
A couple of projects that have been funded in the past are:
- Supporting an Annual Regional Conference on Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship
- A cohort-based dialogue program that offered space for community members of diverse backgrounds to engage in dialogue on topics related to social identity
- Developing an institution's internal research capacity by funding webinars and collaborative workshops designed to support faculty and staff in translating and mobilizing their research and expertise
