DEIB Microgrants awarded for leveraging learning analytics

Wed November 2, 2022

We are pleased to announce our inaugural microgrant awardees for the 2022-2023 academic year.  We had many thoughtful proposals and wish we could have funded all of them. Our selection committee worked to select proposals that spark collaboration, data empowered decision-making, and highlight learning analytics in action.

Our first group of microgrant recipients span a diverse group of instructional faculty and administrators working in support of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging. Each team will receive $5,000 across the academic year to work on their project.

Microgrant Awardees for Learning Analytics in support of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging for the 2022-2023 Academic year:

  • Kaiser Pister; Letters & Science; Computer Science
  • Casey Gallimore & Beth Janetski; School of Pharmacy
  • Tracy Jane Puccinelli; Dept. of Biomedical Engineering & Sara Hagen; College of Engineering
  • Andrew Kuemmel; School of Computer Data & Information Sciences, Computer Science

The cohort will convene monthly to share insights and work with an assigned liaison to help support each project with the resources and data needed to be successful. We have a great group of projects highlighting the ever-growing needs of using data to support student success across our institution.  We look forward to sharing our work at an event at the end of the academic year in May 2023.
