Course Redesign Grant Programs
Faculty have opportunities to receive support from the Chancellor's Office to redesign courses considered "bottlenecks" (those that hinder students' progress to their degree). The CSU allocated $17 million in 2013 to improve graduation rates across the CSU, and these grants programs are a key method of improving student success. This page provide information on the various grant programs, deadlines, and accomplishments of prior grantees. Links for each program provides more details and specifics about application process.
