Grant Summary

$150,000 over 25 months for NAC&U to build on a previous planning grant in order to meet three interdependent goals: 1) To improve and individualize the evaluation of faculty work so that it takes into account professional development aimed at enhancing faculty expertise in teaching and learning; 2) To develop new holistic models for departments that will help them align with the student learning-focused mission of the institution while addressing the specific changing needs and interests of faculty members and the department; and 3) To expand the NAC&U focus on integrating professional studies and liberal arts. Member campuses will develop key publications that capture what holistic departments, revised evaluation, and further integration of professional studies and liberal arts can look like.
