Resources on Campus
The Collaborative for Learning and Teaching is a support center on campus for Trinity faculty and teaching staff to find resources and learn more about teaching in higher education.
ITS works collaboratively with other campus units to design, develop, and maintain classroom spaces and other learning environments technologies.
Trinity University’s Office of Academic Advising Team strives to support the initiatives of the institution as echoed in the Starting Strong Quality Enhancement Plan and the Trinity Tomorrow Strategic Plan.
The Student Success Center (SSC) provides a dynamic collaboration among students, staff, and faculty to enhance the academic and personal development of Trinity students.
”Starting Strong” (QEP) Course Revision Grants
Trinity’s current Quality Enhancement Plan "Starting Strong: Intentional Strategies for Improving First-Year Student Successes,” focuses on strengthening first-year advising, teaching, and academic support resources. Course Revision Grants in the amount of $500 grants are administered by The Collaborative for Learning and Teaching and available to faculty members who teach courses with a large number of first-year students.
Curricular and Pedagogical Innovation Grants
These grants are designed to help faculty members enhance the quality of education at Trinity by taking advantage of new technologies, new teaching methods, and new approaches to knowledge attainment.
We encourage submissions on behalf of individuals, departments, and programs and are particularly interested in proposals that reach across disciplinary lines or that extend out into the local community.
These funds are allocated through the Office of Academic Affairs. Award amounts will vary depending on the scope and complexity of the proposed project. Each proposal should include a brief narrative that addresses:
- Ways in which this project will enhance student learning, including specific goals;
- Schedule of work to be done under the grant;
- Budget (including supplies and expenses, if any); and
- Support of your departmental chair.
At the end of the grant period, each faculty member should submit a brief report evaluating the success of the project.
Send proposals and evaluation reports via email to AVPAA: CFD Duane Coltharp.
These grants are administered jointly by Academic Affairs and The Collaborative to support faculty who develop courses that emphasize innovative pedagogical techniques to enhance learning, both inside and outside the classroom.
The Mellon Initiative considers proposals for $2,500 stipends from Trinity faculty members to add Course-Embedded Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) to lower division courses or to create arts and humanities labs.
