Learning Enhancement Grant Program (LEG)
The Learning Enhancement Grant (LEG) Program is an annual, competitive award program sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and administered by the Center for Learning Enhancement, Assessment, and Redesign (CLEAR). The goal of the LEG program is to support the development of online and blended learning courses and programs that meet nationally-recognized standards for online course design. Ensuring that the university’s online and blended courses provide not only improved access to higher education, but also to the highest quality education, aligns with goals 1 and 2 of the University’s four bold goals.
A request for proposals to apply for a Learning Enhancement Grant typically goes out in October each year, depending upon the availability of funds. The RFP for the 2014-2015 year is not yet developed. Below are the Request for Proposal and LEG Application forms from 2013-2014. This applications cycle ended on November 22, 2013.
