Foundation To Promote Scholarship & Teaching

The purpose of the Foundation is to encourage and support the efforts of the faculty in the wide variety of different kinds of scholarly activities generally recognized in undergraduate-focused universities and articulated in Scholarship Reconsidered and the subsequent expansion of Ernest Boyer’s work supported by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.

RWU notes that Boyer articulated the importance of the Scholarship of Teaching in promoting excellence in the classroom as a key concern in the context of RWU’s mission.
