Scholarly Activity

Improvement of Teaching and Learning Grants

To support and enhance the improvement of teaching and learning at Northwest, Academic Initiatives funds are allocated by the Provost to support projects which have met specific guidelines.  This program is an open process whereby all university units are invited to submit proposals that are directed toward the improvement of teaching and learning within the framework of the mission of the university and the specific department or area.  A sub-committee of the Faculty Senate's Assessment Committee reviews applications and makes recommendations to the Deans Council for approval.
