Intercollegiate Collaborative Teaching

Application deadline: Applications accepted on a rolling basis, for use in Summer 2021 or AY 2021-22.

CSREA invites tenure-track faculty (lecturer-track, tenured, and tenure-track faculty) whose scholarship focuses on race, ethnicity, and/or indigeneity in the United States or comparatively, to apply for the Intercollegiate Collaborative Teaching Program in AY 2021-22. Applications for summer semester 2021 courses are also welcome. 

The Intercollegiate Collaborative Teaching Program is designed to encourage intercollegiate collaborative teaching for seminars on race and ethnicity across accredited universities. We envision this course to be taught virtually with strategic intercollegiate in-person sessions funded by modest travel funds, if applicable. Robust support for student researchers to help design and plan the course is available. In addition, administrative and technological support for coordination will be provided. Additional resources may be available if the collaborative teaching course is with faculty from co-grantee institutions Yale University, Stanford University, or the University of Chicago.
