Program Objectives:

The objectives of the program are to increase the teaching and scholarly effectiveness of faculty by providing resources to:

  • acquire currency in a field of study.
  • develop innovative teaching and learning strategies.
  • change or restructure educational programs to improve student learning and/or the quality of programs of study.

Funded projects respond to the varied needs of our diverse student population and results are disseminated both locally and nationally.

Eligibility Requirements:

Probationary and tenured Sacramento State faculty in Unit 3 is eligible to apply for all programs.  Full and part-time temporary faculty are eligible to apply for monetary support but are not eligible for assigned time or a summer fellowship.  Please note that funding for temporary faculty is contingent upon that faculty member receiving a contract indicating intent to employ for an average of at least six weighted teaching units per semester.
