Course Development Grant Competition


The Provost’s Office General Education Course Enhancement Grant Competition is designed to promote the ongoing enhancement of UConn’s General Education curriculum. Every year we seek proposals for interesting or innovative revised or new general education courses. The call for proposals occurs early in the Fall with a submission deadline in late November or early December. Last year (AY 2019-20), five exciting proposals were selected out of fifteen received.
