Mini Grant, Big Impact
A globe with the top half as a book opening.
As part of our efforts to imagine how graduate education can be more equitable, inclusive, and student-centered, HPG mini-grants have supported 18 faculty across 10 departments and three colleges in redesigning their graduate courses. Faculty members were invited to consider how their graduate courses could prepare students for careers outside academia and how their curriculum could be enriched by diverse voices and perspectives. Department of French and Italian faculty Roxanna Curto and Anny-Dominique Curtius redesigned their Introduction to Graduate Studies course and joined HPG Postdoctoral Scholar Laura Perry and RA Luke Borland to reflect on their co-teaching and co-designing experiences. Read the interview.
