[Dream Courses logo]Principal's Dream Courses

The new Principal's Dream Courses program will provide funding of up to $15,000 in support of the enhancement of already-existing undergraduate courses in a way that encourages undergraduate research and inquiry as key approaches to learning.

Funding will be awarded for the development of sustainable, semester-long courses that directly support both the overall academic mission of Queen’s University and the strategic goals related to enhancement of the learning experience of its students.

Course proposals must also address at least one of the identified themes of Sustainability, Indigenous Identities, and Diversity of Perspectives.
