The Excellence in Undergraduate Education program at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville was established in 1986 for the purpose of funding innovative projects in undergraduate education. Since its initiation, the University has allocated nearly $10 Million to faculty, staff, and students through this program. The EUE program is administered through the Faculty Development Council of the Faculty Senate and the Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
Currently, the EUE program is funded at a level of approximately $150,000 per year. Requests for proposals are sent out near the end of the calendar year with an application date in early spring semester. The program is open to all faculty, staff and students. Details about submitting a proposal can be found on the Projects page. The Budget page and the Guidelines page should also be examined if you are planning to submit a proposal.
The Excellence in Undergraduate Education program continues to serve as a catalyst for the continued improvement of undergraduate curricula and programs at SIUE. The Awards page summarizes some of the activities that have been undertaken by faculty and students with the support of the EUE program.
The EUE Call for Proposals for FY2015 will be available soon. Proposals will be due in early Spring 2014. See the Guidelines section for more information on proposal development. A general information session for those interested in preparing a proposal will be offered near the end of the Fall 2013 semester. Notes from a previous session are available at this link, but potential applicants should note that the guidelines and priorities for the program may change from year to year. This site will be updated immediately if there are any such changes.
