Bringing Theory to Practice Grants
Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP), an independent project in partnership with AAC&U, invites proposals from schools hoping to develop seminars or programs focused on engaged learning, civic engagement and development, and the psychosocial well-being of college students. Grants of up to $1,000 are available to support seminars in the campus community, and grants of up to $10,000 are available to fund programs related to BTtoP’s objectives. Upcoming application deadlines are December 15 and March 15. To learn more, visit www.aacu.org/bringing_theory/.
Personal and Social Responsibility Inventory
The Personal and Social Responsibility Inventory measures campus climate along five dimensions: Striving for Excellence, Cultivating Academic Integrity, Contributing to a Larger Community, Taking Seriously the Perspectives of Others, and Developing Competence in Ethical and Moral Reasoning and Action. Initially developed in connection with AAC&U’s Core Commitments initiative, the inventory is now being administered by the Research Institute for Studies in Education at Iowa State University.
