Grant Summary

$25,000 over 10 months for a planning grant to gather counterparts from eight Association of Independent Technological Universities member institutions to identify major challenges and opportunities for the development of integrative liberal arts curricula at technological institutes. Planning grant funds will support a two-day meeting of senior administrators and faculty to understand the current landscape and future possibility of integrative liberal arts and technology curricula, to share ideas, and to develop a needs assessment. The partners will then design a multi-year program to address needs at the intersection of liberal arts and technical fields, which will include faculty development opportunities, curricular content, and implementation strategies.
