The Provost's Office offers an opportunity for non-ladder faculty to seek paid, semester-long leaves to work on projects that relate directly to their teaching. For language lectors, these leaves are excellent opportunities to devote time to major instructional innovations.
The Travel Grants program provides funding for language lectors who present papers at conferences related to language teaching and learning. The awards cover registration, travel, lodging, and meals.
The Instructional Innovation Grant (IIG) offers financial support to language faculty wishing to pursue projects to enhance language teaching. The IIG allows a faculty member to develop new approaches to language teaching, while relying on a student worker to perform the technical support work.
