Faculty, staff receive grants from ACS

ACS logoNine Furman faculty and staff members have received grants from the Associated Colleges of the South (ACS), an organization serving 16 nationally ranked liberal arts institutions.

ACS Faculty Development Grants were awarded to:

Christy Allen (James B. Duke Library), Scott Salzman (James B. Duke Library), and Susan Dunnavant (Information Technology Services) – Web Accessibility for Libraries

Andrea Tartaro (Department of Computer Science) and Brian Goess (Department of Chemistry) – Improving Student-Created, Zero-cost, Online Course Textbooks by Assessing Improvements in Learning Outcomes

Kyle Longest (Department of Sociology) – Strategic Planning for ACS Teaching and Learning Workshop

Alison Roark (Department of Biology) – Using a Recombinant Yeast Assay to Teach Laboratory Skills in the Undergraduate Classroom

Suresh Muthukrishnan (Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences) and Mike Winiski (Center for Teaching and Learning) – Cross-Institutional Collaboration to Develop GIS Curricular and Knowledge Mapping for Effective and Efficient Blended Learning Delivery

ACS Faculty Development Grants are funded by the Mellon Foundation and the Woodruff Foundation. The grants support projects that develop method rather than content, have a direct impact on student learning and assessment of that learning, and help increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of a liberal arts education.
