The Teaching Excellence Program encourages faculty to attend conferences related to pedagogical development. This may be a teaching conference or a pre-conference associated with a professional meeting.
Faculty may apply for up to $1500 towards registration and travel costs. Recipients of a travel grant from TEP are asked to lead a round-table discussion and/or an interactive presentation about what they learned.
Please note: No more than two grant applications will be funded for the same conference. All Lewis & Clark travel policies apply.
Below are a few examples of conferences faculty attended with travel grants from the Teaching Excellence Program:
-American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages
-American Studies Association Conference
-Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) STEM Leadership Institute, Association of American Colleges and Universities
