The Teaching and Learning Council, currently chaired by Katherine S. Thweatt (SUNY, Oswego), is thrilled to introduce a new annual grant as part of their continued efforts to support and promote disciplinary pedagogy. The Communication Pedagogy Grant (CPG) envisions a space for communication educators to explore innovative pedagogical practices, assessment design, and learning environments and seeks to fund proposals that aim to create long-term impacts on faculty, students, or communities, particularly in marginalized spaces, and foster critical thinking and engagement with social discourses. 

The CPG proudly supports the following NCA Strategic Priorities

Goal 1: Create Conditions to Support and Empower Members 

1.1   Support excellence in Communication-related scholarship, pedagogy, and service 

Goal 3: Embrace and enact inclusion, diversity, equity, and access. 

3.1   Provide the tools for members to value and promote inclusivity, diversity, equity, and access within all disciplinary spaces and societal practices. 

Applicants may seek support up to $15,000. Applications are due September 1 for awards given in the following calendar year.
