This year, we have implemented a strategy to cope with budget challenges for professional development. We have taken last years' statistics in faculty conference spending, and have applied them to our forecast for the coming year. In doing so, we have divided up quarterly funds available according to the percentage of total funds used last year. Hopefully this will allow us to budget for all 4 quarters according to past demand and necessity. Below are the Quarterly Funds available to faculty:
- Fall: $16,623
- Winter: $17,640
- Spring: $12,096
- Summer: $4,032
The limit for each instructor is $1,000 a year.
The best way to secure a funding approval is to apply early!
It is important to note for the academic year, we have adopted quarterly submission deadlines for faculty professional development travel and conference funds:
- Fall Quarter 2014: October 17
- Winter Quarter 2015: January 16
- Spring Quarter 2015: April 28
- Summer Quarter 2015: June 19
The Travel & Conference Committee will meet following each deadline to review the applications. Every effort will be made to fully fund requests. Depending on the number of requests received, requests may be partially funded. Applicants will be notified via district email once the committee has met.
Please download and complete application, then send it, with your supervisor's signature of approval, to Pat Hyland, Dean of Student Affairs & Activities.
