The Boise State University WIDER PERSIST project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation, will accept proposals for partner projects that will center the focus of faculty practice and department, college and institutional culture on teaching. 

The deadline for fall proposals is Aug. 15.

WIDER PERSIST has supported small and large STEM department projects. Some of the current and past projects include “Creating Common Resources to Support Innovative Teaching,” “Creating Stronger Psychology Students through the Adoption of EBIPs in Large Enrollment and Research-Focused Classes” and “Aligning Civil Engineering Courses Through Integration of Active Learning.”

These projects are an important part of helping WIDER PERSIST obtain their vision, which is the enhancement of learning-centered culture, as well as having a positive influence on the success of students on Boise State’s campus.
