U-M's Third Century Initiative requests proposals

Tags: community engagement, deans updates

A call for proposals for the Transforming Learning for a Third Century (TLTC) initiative, one arm of President Coleman's and Provost Hanlon's Third Century Initiative, was launched last week. The call focuses on developing and studying teaching and programmatic innovations that engage students more fully in learning both in and out of their university classrooms.

Two types of proposals are encouraged: One is referred to as Quick Wins, or proposals to engage in innovations that promise speedy, but sustainable, transformation of teaching and learning activities. The second is referred to as Discovery and Transformation. These proposals are for long-term projects that require a design and discovery phase and that may lead to a larger transformation phase. In this first call, only Discovery proposals will be accepted.

Please contact the SOE's Office of Research and Community Engagement if you have any questions about the TLTC competition. All proposals will need to be reviewed by Elizabeth Moje, associate dean for research and community engagement, so please plan to submit your proposals (with budgets) well before the announced due date to allow for that review.
