+ - Faculty Conference Travel Grant Application

To support faculty research and scholarship, the faculty travel grant program will fund faculty travel to domestic and international conference presentations. Please note that there is a $2500 maximum award for international travel and a $1500 maximum award for domestic travel.  Given the college’s limited travel funds, priority will be given to tenure-track junior faculty.  All applications will be reviewed by the applicant’s Department Chair, Associate Dean’s and Dean Keen.

+ - Faculty Course Release Form

This spring semester there are a limited number of course releases available from the Wilkinson Dean’s office to support faculty research/creative-based projects and interdisciplinary team-taught undergraduate and graduate courses. It is unlikely that we can support all requests. Hopefully, this new (experimental) process will provide ample opportunities for unsuccessful applicants to be reconsidered next year.

Important Information

  • Proposals are due September 16, 2019. 
  • Proposals will be reviewed and ranked by the Dean and Associate Deans.
  • Successful candidates who receive research/creative-based course releases for the spring semester cannot teach an overload in inter-term or the spring semester 2020.
  • If your application is successful, you will be required to discuss what you accomplished with the course release in your annual report.

To apply please complete the Course Release Application and upload the required materials (a proposal, cv, and chair recommendation) by clicking HERE.
