The Faculty Development Committee

The Faculty Development Committee is a standing committee of the faculty, charged with furthering the professional growth and development of the faculty. The committee establishes overall policy for operation of the Faculty Development Program at the university; receives applications and makes decisions on Research Grants, Sabbatical Assistance Grants, and Teaching Enhancement Grants; receives Sabbatical Leave and University Scholars Grant applications and makes recommendations regarding awarding of such grants to the chief academic officer; and approves requests for Distinguished Visitor grants, Partnerships-In-Learning, and Faculty Partnerships. The Committee also acts as the permanent nominating committee for the director of Faculty Development, who is appointed by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
