Teaching and Research Communities

Stipends and release time (one or two semesters) for the 1999-2000 academic year are available to faculty through the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and a grant from the Bush and Hewlett foundations. Stipend amounts are $1000 for faculty and $300 for students. Proposals are currently being accepted for the following types of projects:

  • Teaching communities comprised of at least two faculty and two students will investigate specific teaching and learning problems and opportunities. Projects could address, for example, improving student skills in critical thinking or writing in the discipline, or could target specific learning objectives and assessment strategies.

  • Research communities involving collaborations of at least two faculty and two students will pursue discipline-based or interdisciplinary research projects.

Please submit seven copies of the project proposal to the Bush Steering Committee in care of CAT (P.O. Box 73A) by February 18, 1999. Applications must include a written statement of support from your department chairperson. The proposals should include a thorough description of the project, its goals, implementation timeline, evaluation and assessment plan, and roles of the student and faculty participants.

The Bush-Hewlett grant is administered jointly by Xavier's Faculty Development Committee (Michelle Boissiere, Rosalind Hale, Patricia Jacob, Anil Kukreja, Beverly Mason, Janel Nelson-Marsalis, Raquel Mesa, Joseph Olubadewo, Jonathan Rotondo-McCord, and Daniel Sarpong) and CAT. Applications will be reviewed on a competitive basis.
