Faculty Development Funds
The Faculty Senate's Faculty Development Committee provides funding for faculty to attend and present papers at conferences. The funds provided by the University are described in the Policy Statement handbook under PS#1310 (Fund A - General Fund). Grant sizes vary with a maximum of $350 to any one applicant in a fiscal year. Criteria considered by the committee are whether an applicant is presenting a paper or serving as an officer of the organization. Consideration is also given to the significance of the presentation, the importance of attending, and the potential value of the conference to the University.
NOTE:During the Fall 2018 semester, faculty members may submit funding requests for both the General Fund award and the MUW Foundation's faculty development through the online form or the printed form. Beginning Spring 2019, all requests must be submitted through the online form.
