The application period for the 2020-2022 Teaching Enhancement Awards has now closed. 

    The Teaching Enhancement Awards were established to promote the scholarship of teaching and learning at Cleveland State University.

The awardees receive a stipend for the team and participate in over a yearlong project applying their proposed solutions.
