What is Student Achievement Funding?

The Student Achievement Funding (SAF) Request Initiative provides faculty and departments the unique opportunity to request funds for proposals that introduce high-impact practices into the classroom and across our campus that promote:

  • Student Achievement 
  • Student Success
  • Student Engagement

In addition, SAF is a mechanism for faculty and departments to submit proposals that provide our students with the highest quality educational experience both in and out of the classroom. The deadline for submitting proposals occur each spring. As of Fall 2018, 32 proposals have been approved for funding.

The buses gave us the opportunity to travel farther than normal to tournaments along the East Coast! We had a very positive experience regarding the bus driver and his efforts to follow our itinerary without any problems!"

The Spadoni College of Education is eager to kick off the Teacher Leader Academy with a meet and greet reception on Feb. 25. The SAF funds will be used to increase retention and admission into the professional programs by providing these students with mentoring, Praxis support, academic coaching, study and test taking skills workshops, professional development and leadership opportunities."
