What role do faculty & staff play in the ALE program?

A faculty or staff supervisor is required for each approved ALE. These supervisors commit to:

  • facilitating the activity
  • providing prompts for critical reflection
  • grading students' written reflections

ALEs can be facilitated by more than one supervisor if desired.

How do faculty & staff initiate new ALEs?

Faculty or staff members who wish to propose a new ALE should submit an application before the semester begins so the ALE council can verify that it meets the minimum requirements and so the activity can appear on the list of approved ALEs.


Is funding available for ALEs?

Funding is available to help offset start up costs of new ALEs. Faculty and staff supervisors can request this funding when completing the New ALE application. These funds can be used for supplies, technology, training, and related travel. These funds cannot be used as compensation for ALE supervisors.
