As part of the goal of enhancing academic quality, Initiative 1.7 of Campbell University’s Strategic Plan is to increase and improve faculty development support and funding. This has resulted in a new Faculty Development Grant Program. Professional development funds will be available for faculty, outside of existing support for scholarly pursuits. These funds can be applied to a wide range of activities that align with professional development. Beginning in the 2017-18 academic year, 15 awards, up to $2,500 each, will be available.
The purpose of the Faculty Development Grant is to encourage the professional growth of faculty at Campbell University by providing funding for development activities and opportunities. This grant is not to be used directly to fund research efforts. An ad hoc committee on Support for Faculty Development (Strategic Initiative 1.7) collaborated with faculty and administration to create this new grant in the Fall of 2017. The Faculty Development and Research Committee now administers the grant program.
