Community-engaged learning grant

UVic has a long history of community engagement and the university’s strategic plan makes a commitment to integrating teaching, learning, research and civic engagement across the disciplines to benefit our external communities—locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

To support these goals, the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost established the Community-Engaged Learning (CEL) Grant fund in 2014 to support faculty members and academic units seeking to integrate CEL opportunities into curricula. A primary goal of the CEL Grant fund is to create an expanding community of multi-disciplinary faculty members participating in community-engaged learning who can inspire others through their leadership.

Facilitated by the Division of Learning and Teaching Support and Innovation (LTSI), the CEL Grant fund provides $26,000 in grants per budget year (maximum $5,000 per grant) to support the development or redesign of undergraduate and graduate courses (and/or program components) to include community engagement opportunities for UVic students.

Learn about past recipients and the courses that were developed or redesigned.
