In recognition of the specific and ongoing issues of systemic racism faced by students, researchers, and faculty in Canadian higher education, the Office of the President has invited submissions for the UWindsor Anti-Black Racism Teaching and Learning Grant.
The grants will fund:
- research projects that focus on aspects of teaching in higher education;
- academic units and educational leaders in implementing course and curricular reforms; and
- scholarship on learning and teaching as it relates to anti-Black racism pedagogy.
Applicants are invited to submit well-defined proposals that will demonstrably enhance teaching and learning by 4 p.m. Wednesday, June 30. Award winners will be expected to share their outcomes with the university community and to submit a final report of their activities to the Centre for Teaching and Learning.
The Anti-Black Teaching and Learning Grant will award up to $5,000 for teaching and mentorship grants, and up to $10,000 for teams working on curriculum design. Grant duration will be up to 24 months in total, with a start date no sooner than July 1, 2021.
