The Office of the Provost has allocated $5,000 to be distributed to participating faculty for professional development activities during spring term 2020 (funds must be spent prior to June 15, 2020). All participating faculty, full and part-time, are eligible to receive an award up to $500. Awards will be made for relevant professional development activities, including, but not limited to: conference registration/travel, journal subscriptions, memberships for professional organizations, training, books, equipment, unique software, etc.
A sub-committee of the Participating Faculty Task Force will review applications and determine award recipients. Criteria include (1) how the award (funds) will be used (2) the potential impact of the award, and (3) whether or not, and if so how much, the applicant has already received in professional development funds from other sources (e.g., department / college) this academic year.
Completed applications are due by close of business on Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020 and should be submitted via the online form. Applicants will be notified by Friday, Jan. 31, 2020.
