Faculty Development Course Development Grants The Lindy Center for Civic Engagement has funds available for full-time faculty members to apply for a course development grant. These one-time grants are to support the development of courses that include a civic engagement project. Read the full description of course development grants. Faculty Civic Engagement Seminar In conjunction with the course development grant, the Lindy Center hosts an on-going seminar as an opportunity for faculty who are either new to, or are interested in, integrating civic engagement into their courses to come together and discuss best practices, lessons learned, and other aspects of community based experiential learning. Part of the agenda will also include faculty members who are given a course development grant presenting their course/project to the group.
