Seeking funds for your experiential learning opportunity?

The Experiential Learning Innovation Fund for Faculty (ELIFF) supports Experiential Learning innovation across the curriculum at the University of Dayton. The fund supports all faculty in the implementation and integration of creative, high-impact Experiential Learning programs and activities in University courses.  Up to five stipends of approximately $200-$500 will be awarded to faculty members. Preference will be given to faculty and departments which have not already been awarded funds. 

The funds may be used for supplies, event fees, and/or student transportation costs associated with the Experiential Learning activity or program designed by the faculty member(s). Interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaboration is encouraged. Up to three faculty members may submit a single, collaborative proposal application, as long as students in their separate courses will work together on the same Experiential Learning activity or program. Selected faculty will be involved in an Experiential Learning community cohort which includes a campus conversation event in the Learning Teaching Center to acknowledge faculty work in advancing experiential learning at UD. Recipients will also be featured on the Experiential Learning website.

The Director of Experiential Learning and the Experiential Learning Advisory Group review applications based on the following criteria:

  • Creativity in terms of thoughtful integration of experiential learning goals into the activity/program
  • Extent to which learning outcomes for the experience are clearly articulated
  • The depth and intentionality of proposed reflection on experience
  • Perceived financial need and intended use of funds

ELIFF Statistics as of March 2018: $7417.75 awarded for experiential learning programs, activities, and experiences, 20 Recipients, 13 Departments, 173 students engaged
