Distinction through Discovery
Curriculum Grants Program Awardees: June 27th 2013
The Distinction Through Discovery Undergraduate Curriculum Grant Program provides seed funding for the incorporation of undergraduate research and inquiry (URI) practices into the upper-division curriculum. Sixteen proposals from teams of faculty across the university submitted excellent proposals to our program. These proposals were reviewed by faculty, staff, and student evaluators.
The Distinction through Discovery Curriculum Committee (QEP) is pleased to announce that the following faculty have been awarded Distinction through Discovery Curriculum Grants for the 2013-2014 academic year:

In the coming months these faculty will be working with the Distinction through Discovery (DTD) committee to effectively integrate research and inquiry practices and the student learning outcomes of the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) into their courses. The DTD committee will offer an annual call for proposals.
