The Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts is pleased to announce its 2022-2023 Faculty Leadership Grants, which provide UNCSA faculty support to develop projects that provide extraordinary creative development and interdisciplinary opportunities beyond the curriculum.
The Kenan Institute invited UNCSA faculty to apply for grants of up to $5,000 to support projects led by the faculty member that provide opportunities to explore new approaches to creative learning challenges; impact student learning outcomes; foster the capacity of faculty to lead; engage diverse stakeholders; and produce creative ideas and initiatives for further study or implementation. Since 2016, the Kenan Institute has awarded over 99 Faculty Leadership Grants totaling more than $301,463 in direct project support.
“The Kenan Institute for the Arts is committed to providing transformational learning opportunities for the campus community,” says Kevin Bitterman, executive director, “The Faculty Leadership Grants represents our long-term investment to create conditions where UNCSA faculty can have the freedom to explore, innovate, and take risks on creative projects that have the potential to produce new ideas and approaches for the benefit of the campus community.”
Recipients of the 2022-2023 Faculty Leadership Grants are instructors in the Schools of Dance, Drama, Design and Production, Filmmaking, and Music.
More information about the 2022-2023 recipients’ projects can be found on the Faculty Leadership Grants page.
The Thomas S. Kenan Institute for the Arts (TSKIA) at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) was established in 1993 to strengthen the arts by initiating and incubating new ideas within the various constituencies and settings of UNCSA. By leveraging the extraordinary talents and creative energies of students, faculty, staff, and alumni to bring distinction to the University, the Institute acts as a springboard to the broader creative community. In the local community, the Kenan Institute forges alliances aimed at strengthening the arts ecosystem and increasing the contributions that artists make to develop social and economic capital. Regionally and nationally, the Kenan Institute collaborates with leading artists, and partners with exemplary arts organizations, to advance the creative community.
