In 2011, I received a $5000 grant from the Mansfield Institute for Social Justice to support the redesign of LIBS 201, “Writing Social Justice” at Roosevelt University. These funds were used to integrate service-learning projects in six different sections involved in a preliminary pilot study.
In 2011, the Composition program also received $20,000 from the Provost’s Office at Roosevelt in support of our proposal to pilot “Stretch 101” — an innovative model pioneered at Arizona State University.
In 2009, I received $30,000 grant from the Provost’s Office at the University of Southern Mississippi to implement a similar program, which we called “Expanded 100.”
In 2008, I received a $50,000 grant co-sponsored by the National Center for Academic Transformation and the Mississippi Institute for Higher Learning to redesign English 333, “Technical Writing” at the University of Southern Mississippi.
