WSU’s First Transformational Change Initiative Grants to Support Four Projects

June 15, 2022
Washington State University faculty have been awarded the university’s inaugural Transformational Change Initiative (TCI) grants for advancing inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) to advance teaching and learning systemwide. “The four funded projects show a remarkable depth and breadth of creativity in terms of IDEA initiatives,” said Erika Offerdahl, director of the Transformational Change Initiative. “We are pleased the grants will support innovative projects that can be in place for students as early as fall semester.”

Advancing a Transformational Educational Experience

DAESA leads institutional efforts to engage students academically and to provide a high-impact education for all students that culminates in an undergraduate degree and that prepares them for lives of purpose, leadership, and global citizenship. We accomplish this task through the combined academic-support efforts of the more than 30 units, programs, and sub-programs that make up our division in the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President.
