The University Faculty Development Fund provides financial assistance for faculty who wish to attend a conference or workshop having a discipline-specific focus or one that is devoted to pedagogical issues in teaching and learning. Please note: The intent of this funding is to support the professional development needs of individual faculty members. Faculty Development will restrict its funding to two individuals per conference when faculty are applying for only conference attendance and not presentation, poster session or panelist.
The University Faculty Development Committee considers degree of participation in the conference in awarding funding for this category.
Each faculty member is able to receive a maximum of $1500 per year for conferences and workshops from the University Faculty Development Committee after he/she has used the $350 available from the Dean's Fund for Professional Development. Faculty may apply for funding after a conference has already taken place; however, there is no guarantee that funding will be approved.
For reimbursement of an approved Application A, please complete the attached forms and submit with original receipts. Presenters must provide evidence of presentation such as a letter of acceptance or a page from the conference program.
