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 for Fund A and Fund B vary annually depending on funding availability and will be voted on by the Senate. 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.
