TBR Course Revitalization Initiative 2019-20

The Tennessee Board of Regents is accepting grant proposals for course revitalization projects targeting high enrollment gateway classes.  Selection criteria will be weighted toward redesign of courses impacting diversity and equity.  Diversity defined as individual differences and group / social differences that can be engaged in the service of learning. Equity defined as creating opportunities for equal access and success for historically underrepresented populations, such as racial and ethnic minority and low income students.   (NERCHE Self-Assessment Rubric, Saltmarsh, 2019)
