  • Inclusive Classroom Institute: A workshop series that offers opportunities to build awareness, gain understanding, and implement new pedagogical strategies to improve the learning climate for all students.
  • Teaching Enhancement Grant: Provides full-time faculty with a stipend in order to improve their teaching by introducing new methods, ideas, or strategies into their existing courses.

  • Adjunct Professional Development Grant: Aims to support adjunct faculty who wish to participate in a conference or workshop, or receive funding to improve their teaching.

Instructional design and academic technology support is available to all St. Thomas faculty through the St. Thomas eLearning and Research Center (STELAR).
