It is time once again for applications to the Common Faculty Professional Development (CFPD) fund. The application deadline is April 5, 2013.
The fund allows for full-time or part-time paid release from normal duties. A full-time leave can range from one week to six months, while a part-time leave can be up to one year.
Approved leave activities include:
Relevant studies at an appropriate institution, professional research or non-directed study,
Assuming, with another institution, agency, business, or industry, a position in a field related to the College appointment held by the faculty member,
Travel and visitations for studies of particular relevance to the faculty member’s College appointment
The CFPD is a fund negotiated at the Common Bargaining Table several years ago. It is equivalent to 0.6% of the total of faculty salaries.
If you have any questions about how to apply for this fund, please free free to contact Norma Sherret (firstname.lastname@example.org), Faculty Development Coordinator, at any time.
