NCA Grant Opportunities

Communication Pedagogy Grant

The Teaching and Learning Council supports and promotes disciplinary pedagogy. The Communication Pedagogy Grant (CPG) envisions a space for communication educators to explore innovative pedagogical practices, assessment design, and learning environments. The CPG will fund proposals that are most likely to (a) have a long-term impact on faculty, students, or community environments through the development of learning opportunities; (b) that support, challenge, experiment with, and/or advocate for impactful and enduring change in marginalized spaces inside or outside the classroom, such as (but not limited to) grants that foster critical thinking and deliberative engagement with social discourses; and (c) that support exploration of transferable instructional communication methodologies, practices, content, or models, that if adopted by others will create a meaningful teaching experience.

The blue background you're seeing is likely due to a default style being applied elsewhere in your CSS or HTML that affects the .well2 class or a parent element. The provided CSS specifies a background color of #faf6f3 (a light, almost white color) for .well2. If this color is not being applied, it means another CSS rule with higher specificity or priority is overriding it. Here are a few things to check and try: Specificity and Order: Ensure that there isn't another CSS rule with higher specificity or a later one in the cascade that is setting a different background color. You can use browser developer tools (right-click on the element and select "Inspect" or "Inspect Element") to see which styles are being applied and overridden. Parent Element Styles: Check if a parent element has a background color that is affecting the .well2 element. Inline Styles: Inline styles or styles applied via JavaScript could also override your CSS. External CSS Files: Make sure no external CSS files are overriding your styles. Here's an example of how you might override an existing style with higher specificity if needed:
