A brief description of the program(s):

Undergraduate Instructional Improvement funds provide support for projects that enhance the educational experience of UC Davis undergraduates. Individual faculty members, faculty groups, and departments or programs are invited to submit proposals. Projects may range from efforts by an individual faculty member to revise an existing course to a department-wide update of undergraduate curricula. Incorporating issues of environmental sustainability into the curriculum is an area of special emphasis for proposals.

A brief description of the incentives that faculty members who participate in the program(s) receive:

1. Department/Program Awards. Departments and programs can request UIIP funds to substantially revise all or part of an existing curriculum. Revisions can include developing new courses, consolidating existing courses, program assessment, and so on. Requests of this sort normally complement additional resources committed by the college or division and by the department or program.

2. UIIP Faculty Course Development Awards. Individual faculty members can request UIIP funds to help develop new courses or make substantial revisions to existing courses. UIIP funds allocated for Department or Individual course development projects may be used to develop or purchase course materials, hire graduate or undergraduate assistants, and for other related expenses.
