Faculty Mini Grant Opportunity:
Health Misinformation Education

Deadline to submit proposals: October 9th at midnight

As part of efforts to create a healthier information environment in Alaska, the Alaska Health Misinformation Response Project Team seeks UAA and branch campus faculty for a mini-grant opportunity to raise awareness about the threat of health misinformation, particularly as it relates to confidence in vaccination.

The mini-grants allow an opportunity for local community dialogue and engagement with faculty, staff, students, and the public on how to identify and manage this emerging threat. Interested applicants are encouraged to apply for a maximum of $2,500. Smaller budgets are also welcome. We strongly encourage applicants to collaborate with a local community agency to amplify engaged learning.

Deadline to submit proposals: October 9 at midnight. See the Faculty CCEL Mini-grant Opportunity
Health Misinformation Education Google document for additional information and submission instructions.

Excellence in Teaching & Learning

Embracing UAA's Role as a Community Partner

Since 2006, UAA has been recognized by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as a “Community Engaged Institution.”

UAA uses the Carnegie Foundation's definition of community engagement for our work with communities: "Community Engagement describes the collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity."

The Center for Community Engagement and Learning serves as a central locus for the intersection of student learning, faculty research, and community engagement.
