RCHSS Teaching Enhancement Program

The RCHSS Teaching Enhancement Program (TEP) is a competitive process through which faculty can apply for funds to enhance their teaching by offering their students supplemental opportunities.

The program focuses on providing experiential learning opportunities for students, increasing students’ sense of community, and improving student retention. TEP funds can be used to fund initiatives aimed at enhancing student success in and outside the classroom through field trips, engagement opportunities, books or supplies for project-based learning, funds to support traveling exhibits, funds for technology used for experiential learning, honoraria and/or travel funds for guest lecturer presentations for classes, and other similar activities or materials. Information about the application process for these competitive awards can be found on the RCHSS Funding Competitions site when available. Applications are generally due in the middle of the Spring semester.
