Faculty Development Grant Program

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.

Purpose

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.

Qualifications of Applicant / Eligibility

Preference will be given to full-time undergraduate faculty, but part-time and graduate faculty are also eligible and encouraged to apply. Applicants must have completed at least one full year of service at Campbell University. Please list your name, position, status, and if you teach undergraduate or graduate students.

Project

Please provide a thorough description of the proposed activity, including such things as purpose, planned objectives or outcomes, and a timeline for deliverables and milestones.

Grant ideas include but are not limited to the following examples: workshops in or out of discipline area, certificate programs, conferences, community engagement efforts, or training in a new skill to be used in research or education. Interdisciplinary proposals that promote collaborative efforts across schools and departments are also encouraged.   

Impact

In this section, explain how your chosen professional development opportunity aligns with Campbell’s mission and the faculty’s current position. This should include a plan to share any added benefits to Campbell faculty and staff beyond the scope of the professional development activity.

Budget

Please provide a budget detailing expenditures in support of the project for funding up to $2,500. Also provide an anticipated date by which funds will be needed.   Funding will be restricted to one award per recipient per year.
