Grant Summary

$243,000 over 30 months to Ursinus College, Rhodes College, Lawrence University, and College of the Holy Cross, all of which share a strong commitment to core or core-curricula. The project aims are to: better articulate the goals and best practices of their core courses; further enhance their programs; engage and support faculty in this work; and disseminate project findings to wider audiences. Each campus will address: how they understand their curricular goals; how the details of the course contribute to those goals; how they can tell they are accomplishing those goals; and how can they improve.
