Five projects aimed at strengthening undergraduate engagement and academic success at U of G have received nearly $98,000 from the University’s Learning Enhancement Fund (LEF).

Created in 2006, the fund supports initiatives arising from the integrated planning process and the curriculum renewal process.

LEF grant proposals can come from faculty or staff in any college, department or academic support unit that reports to the provost. Projects must strengthen undergraduate teaching and learning in demonstrable ways, says Serge Desmarais, associate vice-president (academic). They must also be sustainable, novel, interesting, have a potential impact on teaching, and support learning experiences that cross departmental and college boundaries, he said.

In total, 22 proposals were submitted, including from the Alfred and Ridgetown campuses.
