P923: Project TUESTYC: a grant proposal preparation and mentoring program for two-year college faculty

John Dwyer (St. Catherine University, USA), David Brown (Southwestern College, USA)

For each of the past three years, we have worked with cohorts of two-year college (2YC) faculty as part of an NSF-funded initiative to enhance participation of 2YC faculty in the NSF Transforming Undergraduate Education in STEM (TUES, formerly CCLI) program.  The impetus for these projects was the recognition that while 2YC faculty were teaching a large and increasing segment of undergraduate STEM majors, their participation in the TUES program was disproportionately low.   Through these projects we developed a faculty professional development model that includes an intensive grant proposal writing workshop coupled to post workshop mentoring by proposal writing experts designed to assist participants to prepare and submit TUES proposals.   This presentation will describe this professional development model, some of the key features of our workshop, the impacts and outcomes of the project for participants, and some lessons learned.
