The Undergraduate Course Development Fund (UCDF) fosters ongoing, mutually beneficial teaching relationships between graduate-only divisions and units and divisions that offer undergraduate degree programs. Undergraduate divisions benefit from the inclusion of leading-edge researchers into their teaching cadre, and participating faculty and their graduate divisions benefit from exposure to a broad undergraduate population. UCDF funding is enrolment based and provided to the partnering graduate division in support of their instructor participating in the program.


  1. The faculty member should normally hold a primary appointment in the graduate division/unit partnering in the UCDF course.
