CAS Departments awarded CHEER funds for Student Engagement Activities

What is the Cheer Fund?
Creating Highly Engaging Educational Resources

The CHEER Fund supports faculty and staff initiated undergraduate engagement activities by reimbursing up to $250.00 of incurred expenses. Engagement activities can be loosely defined as opportunities for personal interaction between faculty/staff and undergraduate students that create a mutual sense of intellectual investment. In other words, anything that sparks our students’ interest in learning.
