Grant Summary

$450,000 over 36 months to promote a student-centered approach to curricular redesign in a large state university system by engaging selected liberal arts programs in a planning process that results in a more cohesive and coordinated learning experience for all their majors. This ambitious project extends a successful model for curricular reform developed by San Francisco State University with support from a Teagle grant made in 2014. The second multi-campus phase of the proposed work has the potential to improve the experience and progress toward degree of many thousands of students throughout the California State University system.

This grant is co-funded by the College Futures Foundation.
