Each grant project will receive between $500,000 to $650,000 over one to two years to support institutional-level changes in undergraduate STEM education. Projects were awarded based on their ability to: • Demonstrate an innovative approach to institutional-level change that will improve learning outcomes and/or reduce equity gaps. The proposed approach should, as appropriate, address institutional barriers to student success and/or aim to foster institutional contexts that are conducive to student success. • Demonstrate potential for sustainable, institution-wide impact across the partner campuses. At the university level, proposed projects should have potential for impact at least at the school/college/multi-departmental level. Projects should also demonstrate potential for subsequent broader dissemination to and replication at other campuses and segments of higher education. • Demonstrate potential to directly or indirectly improve learning outcomes and/or close equity gaps in online and hybrid course environments for lower division undergraduate students. • In addition, projects should integrate the science of human learning and adaptive learning technology tools where appropriate, and make robust use of data and technology in order to achieve objectives. UC Regent Maria Anguiano, Foothill College President Thuy Nguyen, and CSU Trustee Peter Taylor acted as the Selection Committee for these awards, which were approved by Governor’s Office of Planning and Research Director Kate Gordon.
