The Dean’s Office, in collaboration with the Professional Development Committee, will consider requests for conference participation for 2022-2023, with with a nominal cap of $1200. Please make your requests by November 1, 2022, if at all possible, even if the details of your participation are not yet clear. Faculty who need to make changes should contact the Dean’s Office as soon as those changes are known. If you have other sources of funding (grants, start-up, or endowed professorships), or if a conference offers any sources of funding for applicants, please plan to use to those sources first. For 2022-2023, faculty no longer need to separate Faculty Flex requests from conference travel requests, as long as the total request does not exceed $1200. See the Flex Plan document for examples of reimbursable items and an FAQ. Please fill out the funding request survey here.
Professional development funding will be offered on a limited basis to part-time faculty as either travel or flex funding. Funding will be pro-rated at a limit of $150 per course taught. Funding must be used during an active teaching semester and does not carry-over from one year to the next. Part-time faculty can apply for funding through the survey – please reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
When requesting reimbursement, please complete and submit a check request or travel reimbursement form, located on the Business Office website, along with scanned copies of your receipts within 90 days of conference participation. If receipts are not submitted within 90 days, reimbursement may be delayed. Send all reimbursement paperwork to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The last step after conference attendance is filling out the Faculty Good News form which can be found here.
