CLAC Course Development Grants for Asia-related courses are available for summer 2022 with an application deadline of March 18, 2022.

Call for Proposals:

The Center for Asian Studies invites CU Boulder faculty who would like to use CLAC techniques to enhance the study of Asia-related subjects to apply for CLAC Fellow course development grants.

CLAC Co-Seminar Course Development Grants will offer a $1000 stipend for the development of a supplemental one-credit undergraduate co-seminar drawing students and content from an existing disciplinary course in any department. Faculty will be responsible for teaching this co-seminar using primary Asian language and cultural sources to enhance the content of the main course. CLAC co-seminars will be listed as ASIA 4001 (Arts & Humanities) or ASIA 4002 (Social Sciences).

CLAC Fellows should offer the new course in AY 2022-2023 if possible. All recipients will receive training and support through the CAS CLAC program and CLAC Consortium members. CLAC courses should utilize primary language and cultural sources, such as historical or contemporary materials and mass media.

To learn more about CLAC, please check out “Expanding Inclusive Excellence and Intercultural Competency: Content Instruction through a Multicultural and Bilingual Lens,” a recording from a CAS roundtable held in February 2021. The roundtable focused on faculty experiences with CLAC and the benefits and opportunities that the program offers.

Application Information is available on the CAS website. Questions can be directed to Danielle Rocheleau Salaz, CAS Executive Director.
