Faculty Resources

The awarding process will be determined by the Faculty Development Committee and consider how proposals advance the vision and missional commitments of the GSOE:

  • Vision: Guided by social justice and advocacy, we will reimagine education to disrupt inequities and to meet the future needs of students and communities
  • Mission: Our mission is to prepare administrator, counselor, and teacher leaders who advocate for educational equity and access, grounded in scholarship that advances innovation and addresses community-based needs in P-20 schools.

With the recent reformulation of the GSOE vision, mission, and guiding principles, the annual funds available through the Center for Innovative Learning (approximately $10,000 per year) will be targeted to advance these ideas. The two areas of funding include:

Event / Activity Proposal Form

GSOE Mini-Grants
