Mini-Grant Application Information:
Please submit your application (link below) to the Center for Teaching and Learning (153 Scarborough Library) or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Some possibilities include:
- Hiring an external reviewer on an assessment-related topic.
- Traveling to an assessment-related conference or event.
- Revising a course or program to meet student learning goals.
- Attending or organizing a workshop or retreat that will advance the unit’s student learning goals.
