Student Success in the Majors

Chancellor Office Funding to Support Graduation Initiative 2025

The Student Success in the Majors initiative supports faculty in targeted redesign of their curriculum in order to support student success. The goal of any curricular redesign should be to maintain high standards while also assuring that curricular decisions increase the likelihood that students will persist in their studies and graduate in four years, if first-time students, or two years for transfer students.

The focus of the 2018-19 program is on the creation or redesign of lower division courses in the major to improve student connection to, retention in or success in their chosen major. Grants of $5,000 to $7,000 will be awarded to departments to support faculty in making curricular revisions that takes place this year to be implemented in 2019-2020. The result of the grant should be a proposed curricular change(s) that is approved by the Department and submitted to the Office of Academic Planning.

Grant proposals, completed on the provided template, will need the Department Chair's and College Dean or designee’s endorsement and to be submitted by Monday, October 8th, 2018. Information about the budget and requirements are included on the template.
