We fund innovative projects that enhance the effectiveness of teaching humanities and fine arts to students at the University of Utah.
The Dee Endowment for the Enhancement of Teaching was established to fund teaching projects in the University of Utah’s College of Fine Arts and College of Humanities. The Council of Dee Fellows, a representative group of faculty members nominated by the Colleges and elected by the Council, annually distributes grants that infuse new energy and teaching techniques into the educational experience at the University.
The past recipients of Council of Dee Fellows grants represent thoughtful approaches to teaching, taking to heart the goal to ensure learners learn effectively.
The Council of Dee Fellows invites applications that directly benefit students and the student experience while providing immediate impacts and potential long-term benefits to teaching and learning. Successful projects promote innovative interdisciplinary educational programs, foster community engagement, and promote the university’s commitment to access and diversity.
