Grant Summary

$115,000 over 18 months to create an online mini-course and accompanying resources to advance faculty understanding of the economics of higher education. This effort builds on the successful Teagle-supported dissemination of videos of its summer faculty development institutes. The online course will enable faculty members to participate more effectively in shared governance of their institutions by advancing their understanding of the ways that their choices shape the financial future of their institutions. Through the online course, ACM aims to reach 300 ACM and 400 non-ACM faculty over three years and will disseminate lessons learned at the Association of American Colleges and Universities, EDUCAUSE, Council of Independent Colleges, and similar venues.
