The Center sponsors various funded and non-funded opportunities to support faculty, post-doc fellows, instructional staff, and graduate students to conduct research projects that evaluate evidence-based learning through performance outcomes. These projects might include pre- and posttest, portfolio evaluation, and longitudinal tracking of student achievement. Successful proposals provide clear evidence of instructional practices that encourage active learning. For additional information about Center-funded projects, please refer to our Grants and Fellowships page or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

*Thanks to a two-year Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education (FIPSE) grant, the Center funded graduate students to participate in learning communities for academic years 2010-11 and 2011-12. Graduate fellows conducted classroom research and publish their findings in our guidebook project paper series, focused on the needs of first-generation college students. Graduate students were paired with a Senate or Non-Senate faculty mentor. If you have any questions about the FIPSE Guidebook Project, please contact Anne Zanzucchi, the project coordinator (email@example.com or 209-228-4173).
