COE Faculty Receive University Grants for 2017

 Community members holding hands
The University Research Council and the University Grants and Lectureship Committee (UGLC) announced the awardees of the University Grants Program (UGP) for 2017 and several were COE faculty members!

The purposes of the UGP are to support scholarly research and creative activities, permit faculty to launch new projects, bring advanced projects to completion; and help faculty members develop a research program competitive for extramural funding.

The University Grants Program combines funds from several sources; the CSU Chancellor’s Office, the SDSU Provost’s Office, the SDSU Research Foundation and the Adams Humanities Endowment Fund.

Out of 134 applications campus-wide, 48 awards were chosen this year and five were faculty members from the College of Education.  We are so proud of the contributions of our faculty and for the difference they make every day.
