Request for Innovative Curricular Projects; The Alex and Brit d’Arbeloff Fund for Excellence in Education
The Office of the Vice Chancellor is soliciting wide-ranging proposals to support larger-scale ambitious projects designed to strengthen MIT undergraduate education and curricula, and enrich the academic experience of our undergraduates. Proposals can be focused at any level of undergraduate education, and those transcending specific departmental curricula are also encouraged.
In recent years, several important reports have been released that include recommendations for improving MIT. You are encouraged to review these and others as you develop ideas for proposals focused on undergraduate education:
- Report of Task Force 2021 and Beyond (October 2021),
- Report of the Ad hoc Committee on Leveraging Best Practices from Remote Teaching for On-Campus Education (August 2022),
- Draft MIT Five-year Strategic Action Plan for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (2021-2026) (March, 2021).
Necessary forms, instructions, and descriptions of previously funded projects can be found on the Fund website (https://registrar.mit.edu/darbeloff). If you would like to discuss how the d’Arbeloff Fund could support your idea or have questions about the application process, please contact the Registrar’s Office, Curriculum and Faculty Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proposals are due by Friday, October 21, 2022.
