Bringing Theory to Practice Grants

Bringing Theory to Practice (BTtoP), an independent project in partnership with AAC&U, invites proposals from schools hoping to develop seminars or programs focused on engaged learning, civic engagement and development, and the psychosocial well-being of college students. Grants of up to $1,000 are available to support seminars in the campus community, and grants of up to $10,000 are available to fund programs related to BTtoP’s objectives. Upcoming application deadlines are December 15 and March 15. To learn more, visit www.bttop.org

Personal and Social Responsibility Inventory

The Personal and Social Responsibility Inventory measures campus climate along five dimensions: Striving for Excellence, Cultivating Academic Integrity, Contributing to a Larger Community, Taking Seriously the Perspectives of Others, and Developing Competence in Ethical and Moral Reasoning and Action. Initially developed in connection with AAC&U’s Core Commitments initiative, the inventory is now being administered by the Research Institute for Studies in Education at Iowa State University.
