The purpose of the Learning Communities Mini-Grant Program is to encourage faculty to develop creative ways to meet one or more student learning outcomes common to all learning communities.
Learning Communities Program Student Learning Outcomes
- Integrative Learning: Students will identify connections across, between, and among LC courses and will demonstrate connections between experiences and academic knowledge.
- Campus and Community Engagement: Students will begin to form connections with faculty, staff, fellow students, and student organizations, and will begin to build an identity as an engaged student of Kennesaw State University.
A link to the LC Minigrant application can be found in the D2L course for LC Faculty. The deadline for proposals for fall semester activities is July 1 (applicants will be notified of a decision by July 20). The deadline for proposals for spring semester activities is December 1 (applicants will be notified of a decision by December 18). You are welcome to submit your proposal well before the deadline. Proposals will be reviewed by the Learning Communities Advisory Council, which is comprised of faculty, staff, and administrators from across both campuses.
Up to $500 per learning community
Proposals will be judged based on potential impact on student learning and the degree to which the activity meets one or both of the Learning Community Program’s student learning outcomes.
Funds may be awarded to any full-time, part-time, or adjunct faculty member who is teaching in a learning community. Faculty may not apply more than once per learning community. Funds may not be used for faculty travel, stipends or salary supplements.
