To report another problem, please contact REIS@marquette.edu.
The Race, Ethnic and Indigenous Studies (REIS) program supports the development of innovative courses that explore issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion, are community-engaged, and that are rooted in culturally responsive pedagogy and equity-mindedness. Definitions for diversity, equity, equity-mindedness, and inclusion can be found on the AACU “Making Excellence Inclusive” website.
To that end, REIS, supported by the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion, awards summer grants of up to $1,500 to several full-time faculty to develop new courses or significantly revise existing courses. The course must be taught at least once within the three semesters following the award.
We are particularly interested in courses that do one or more of the following:
Interested faculty are encouraged to discuss their ideas with the REIS directors, Dr. Stephanie Rivera Berruz and Dr. Tara Daly, and to complete a new course proposal in the fall preceding the award. You may also consider reaching out to the Center for Teaching and Learning - they have a variety of resources available to help you get started as well as one-on-one consultations available.
Applications are due March 31.
Proposals are reviewed by the Center for REIS for alignment with office and university goals for diverse and inclusive classroom spaces, innovative student-centered pedagogical practices, and potential impact on students. Applicants must submit the following materials:
Applications must be submitted electronically to REIS@marquette.edu. Winners are announced by May 1. Prior winners from the past two award cycles are ineligible to reapply.
Awardees will be asked to provide REIS with a 1-2 page summary of their work along with a completed syllabus by Oct. 15th of the award year, keeping in mind that the deadline for getting new courses approved for the following academic year usually falls in November.
