CCA Student Travel Grants are awarded to select student applicants to help fund
travel related to their coursework. Funding may go towards speaking at a
conference, conference attendance, or research-related travel, and a clear
correlation between the trip and the student applicant’s studies at CCA must be
made. This grant is not for travel expenses related to study abroad courses.

The maximum award for an individual travel grant is $500. The grants are
competitive; not all students applying for a grant will receive one.

Grants are for travel that has yet to occur at the time of submission. (Retroactive
grants will not be awarded.)

This application is for submission of proposal for UDIST course to be considered for the 2018/2019 academic year. 
Currently, only CCA faculty who teach in the year of application or on College-approved sabbatical are eligible to apply (i.e., the academic year prior to the academic year the UDIST course will be taught).
For courses that are co-taught or team taught, at least one faculty instructor must be teaching or at CCA on College-approved sabbatical in the year of application.

Please ensure you have reviewed the UDIST proposal guidelines and learning outcomes prior to submitting your application.

The proposal must be interdisciplinary in order to be accepted. Interdisciplinary studios often fall into one of the three following structures:

1. A topic-based course that is relevant to students working in any discipline and engages students in cross-disciplinary discussions and dialogues and studio-based learning.

2. A multidisciplinary course that involves at least three disciplines across at least two divisions, often with an emphasis on collaborative work.

3. A course that approaches interdisciplinarity as a specific discipline in its own right in which interdisciplinary is understood as more than “a variety of disciplines.” Addresses practices that are interdisciplinary in nature.

Interdisciplinary Approach

Proposals should demonstrate an understanding of the different learning/working/processing styles within different disciplines and employ these to expand student understanding and learning.

Relevance & Innovation

The subject is relevant to CCA students and offers valuable experiences that are not available to them in their discipline-specific coursework. Proposals that explore contemporary subject matter, advanced materials, exploratory techniques and developing technologies are highly encouraged.


All UDIST courses are offered six hours a week. Classes meet either once a week Monday - Friday (9am-3pm) or twice a week Mon/Wed or Tues/Thur (8am-11am or 4pm-7pm or 7:15pm-10:15pm) and/or 12pm-3pm on an as needed basis).
Ends on October 11, 2017

Thinking Out Loud presents all kinds of “drawing”- sketches on napkins, doodles done in a meeting, margin notes, finished drawings, large drawings, tiny drawings, incomplete drawings, storyboards, site plans, sketchbook pages, proposals, iterative sketches, a first pass at a poem, drawings that have been erased or corrected, manuscripts with edits, digital renderings, epic failures and dreams so big that they can only fit on paper. This show looks at the importance of drawing and making marks on paper as a form of externalizing ideas, building community, and creating culture. It is inspired by the work of Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky who claimed that the origins of internal thought begin as a communal, externalized activity that is shaped by the communities we are a part of and culture which we come from. This show presents the act of marks on a page as a form of thinking that happens outside of our heads, and that the act of drawing can build community and shape our culture.
