TEXT SIZE

11:10 a.m., May 17, 2013--The Center for Science, Ethics and Public Policy (SEPP), with support from the National Science Foundation’s EPSCoR program, announces a grant competition to integrate considerations of science, ethics and policy into undergraduate and graduate instruction at the University of Delaware.

Faculty of all ranks are invited to apply for an Integrative Curriculum Development Grant. It is anticipated the center will make 10 awards of $3,000 each for curricular development work during summer 2013.

Campus Stories

PT STAR

The physical therapy classrooms on the University of Delaware's STAR Campus are adding new dimensions to education for both teachers and learners.

Ice cream finalists

The five finalists have been chosen for the Alumni Weekend's Dela-bration Ice Cream Flavor contest, and members of the campus community get to decide which flavor is the cream of the crop by voting online.

The goal of the program is to support new modules in existing or planned courses, in which the modules introduce or explore the following general themes:

  • Research ethics;
  • Environmental ethics or policy;
  • Science policy;
  • Bioethics; and
  • Other ethical, social or legal issues relevant to the subject matter of the course.

It is expected that faculty proposals will adapt these themes to the learning goals of the particular course. The proposal text is limited to one page in length, and the current syllabus for the course should be attached.

The deadline for applications is May 30. For further information, or to apply, contact SEPP Director Tom Powers at tpowers@udel.edu or 302-831-3229.
