A brief description of the program(s):

Cash prizes can be awarded to Marquette faculty and instructors across the disciplines that use social innovation – the solving of social problems – as a tool for interdisciplinary learning in their teaching and scholarship. All faculty and instructors are eligible. Award decisions are based on brief descriptions of current or future plans to use social innovation’s emphasis on solving social problems in their teaching and scholarship.


In addition, the Marquette University Center for Transnational Justice (CTJ) awards two grants for full-time Marquette faculty to develop new courses, or significantly revise existing courses, that explore issues of justice that transcend national borders. The course must be taught at least once within three semesters following notice of the grant award. Innovative proposals are sought especially in the following areas:

• Migration: including immigration, refugee and asylum issues, migrant worker issues, immigrant incorporation and exclusion
• Economics, Politics, and Justice: including issues of hunger, environmental policy and practice, global economic crises, and development
• Human Security: including issues of human rights challenges and protections, health care and pandemic diseases, and transnational crime
