This category includes those proposals that focus on the development of student-centered pedagogical approaches; augmentation of existing curriculum; assessment of new skills for students; development of classroom support materials and activities, excluding consumables or materials that are part of normal operating expenses; and development of interdisciplinary programs or courses.

Innovations from all funded proposals in this category will be recognized at the annual Faculty Symposium hosted by the Teaching and Learning Forum where recipients will be honored as having received a Presidential Teaching Innovation Grant, a George and Beth Lowe Innovative Teaching Grant or a Community Engaged Learning Innovative Teaching Grant. All grant recipients are also expected to present at the symposium.
