Columbia University's new Provost’s Interdisciplinary Teaching Awards (ITA) are designed to support faculty from different disciplines to work collaboratively on the design and launch of innovative interdisciplinary courses.  Emerging from the deliberations of the Provost’s Interdisciplinary Working Group, this brand new program will award grants to teams of 2 or more faculty from different departments or schools to develop and offer undergraduate or graduate courses that integrate content and perspectives from different disciplines to enhance student learning. Interested applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) on course design, and assistance in new pedagogies, student assessment, and course evaluation while preparing the proposal.


A complete application includes a Cover Sheet, Course Description, Plan of Project, Budget + Budget Justification, and Letter of Support. For more information, including additional eligibility requirements, please visit the Call for Applications.
