This guide covers the rationale and development of the Faculty Development Profile, Plan and Proposal.

Faculty Development Proposal

The budget guidelines for Faculty Development Proposals are as follows:

  1. It is expected that the participant will collect receipts, invoices and other documentation for each expenditure, insofar as this can be reasonably accomplished.
  2. Stipend, salary, or other direct personal remuneration to the participant or to members of his/her immediate family, even for services rendered, will not be funded.
  3. Travel, food, and lodging expenses will be funded within the guidelines established for the Faculty Development Committee for the current year.
  4. Remuneration for student assistants will be approved only if the duties of said assistants is directly related to the activities contained in the individual Proposal (e.g., monies will not be provided for assistants whose principal functions are simply to free the applicant from his/her current responsibilities).

Three (3) paper copies and one (1) electronic copy of each Proposal (see attached) for Faculty Development Funding should be submitted to the chair of the committee in accord with the published deadlines on the University Calendar. Each proposal should be typed and signed by the faculty member, his/her chair or director and the Dean.  Unless a proposal has three signatures, the Faculty Development Committee will not review the Faculty Development Proposal.
