Funded Projects 2014-2015

Two years ago, CSUEB launched the Programmatic Excellence & Innovation in Learning (PEIL) grant program to support faculty teams planning and/or implementing changes in undergraduate instruction designed to improve student learning. The program is getting significant attention across the CSU system and beyond. I commend the faculty that have stepped forward to participate and look forward to sharing the progress being made by teams working in 2013-14 during our campus’ Week of Scholarly Research in Spring 2014. 

Request for Proposals:

The request for proposals (RFP) for the third round of PEIL grants and scoring rubric that will be used to assess proposals are is available via the link below. The RFP has been adjusted to reflect what has been learned during the first two years. Grants of up to $70,000 each will be awarded to compensate one or two faculty “leads” and other faculty, staff and/or student collaborators. Teams are free to allocate the time in any way that fits with the proposal design. One potential example would be as follows:

  • 2 faculty@$28,500 each or $57,000 total including:
         Fall overload ($5,000 each)
         1 Winter and 1 Spring release ($10,000 each)
         Summer ($12,000 each)
         Benefits ($1,500 each)
  • 3 faculty collaborators@$3,000 each or $9,000 total
  • 4 staff members @$500 each
  • Other project costs $2,000

Proposal Submissions:

Proposals must be submitted to the Dean of the faculty leads’ college(s) by
5:00 pm on February 3, 2014. Each Dean will forward up to three proposals (two addressing departments/majors in the college and one addressing general education) for further consideration to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs by February 14, 2014.
