GPC STEM Faculty Mini-Grant Program

Office of STEM Initiatives

The GPC Faculty Mini-Grant Program provides financial support for faculty research-based projects that address challenges specific to the College mission and strategic plan; increase student learning; and, positively impact student performance in STEM courses.  Aligning with the goals of the Office of STEM Initiatives and the USG STEM Initiative II, proposals are especially encouraged in the area of improving STEM education in critical gate-keeping courses (MATH 1113, MATH 2431, CHEM 1211, CHEM 1212, etc.) as well as those courses considered gate-keeping in their respective programs of study.

The goal of the GPC Faculty Mini-Grant Program is to support faculty who engage in innovative research-based projects that:

  • Improve instructional delivery and educational outcomes

  • Enhance student learning experiences

  • Impact student performance

The overall objective is to increase by 10% the number of students who demonstrate satisfactory performance (A, B, C) in the overall course, on an educational unit, or course topical area.
