Building KU's Teaching and Learning Community

PROGRAMS AND FUNDING

CTE offers several programs and funding opportunities for faculty members who are interested in improving their teaching practices. More specifically, we support instructors who want to pursue course transformation, incorporate and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, and become involved in an intellectual community of instructors. In addition, we also have resources for both new and experienced GTAs at KU. Many of these programs and projects contain opportunities for faculty funding, and all of them represent CTE’s mission to support instructors who want to develop as teachers.

We update the pages below as we develop new programs, projects, partnerships, and funding opportunities. Please check back regularly for the most up-to-date information.
