Grant Summary

$25,000 over six months to the Florida Consortium of Metropolitan Research Universities, which consists of Florida International University, the University of Central Florida, and the University of South Florida. This planning grant, made under the “Liberal Arts and the Professions” initiative, supports efforts at the three campuses to embed and integrate the liberal arts in engineering programs of study. The three campuses collectively serve 13,000 engineering majors. Teams of liberal arts and engineering faculty from the three campuses will identify programs and courses to target for redesign and cross-listing and explore high-impact practices like senior capstone experiences that promote integrative learning.
