CCMA Announces New Faculty Development Mini-Grant Funding

July 14, 2021

Campus Compact Mid-Atlantic (CCMA) announces $10,000 in new funding to provide grant funding (up to $2,000) to support CCMA member faculty development designed to enhance student learning and engagement that is aligned with CCMA’s mission, vision, and values.  Full and part-time faculty from CCMA members institutions or faculty development directors and staff are eligible to apply. CCMA encourages projects that involve cross-disciplinary teams or collaborative teams of faculty from two or more institutions.

The grant funding can be used to support:

  • Requests from individual faculty for funds to attend conferences, workshops, or symposia. Support faculty development opportunities (workshops/institutes). Faculty can propose and lead topics. Interdisciplinary and or inter-institutional proposals are fundable.
  • Requests from individual institutions or collaborations between and among multiple educational institutions to host faculty development webinars/institutes that ultimately support students’ community-engaged learning, such as:
    • Institutes for institutional teams to revise promotion and tenure guidelines to recognize faculty who involve students in community-engaged learning and reflection;
    • Institutes for engaging community partners; and
    • Opportunities to support faculty, community partner, and student writing partnerships to expand knowledge about community impact through community-engaged learning.
  • Requests from individual faculty for materials, travel costs, etc. to support community-engaged learning projects.

CCMA is particularly excited to fund projects with a broader impact, such as:

  • Institutes for institutional teams to revise promotion and tenure guidelines to recognize faculty who involve students in community-engaged learning and reflection;
  • Institutes for engaging community partners; and
  • Opportunities to support faculty, community partner, and student writing partnerships to expand knowledge about community impact through community-engaged learning.
