Purpose and Scope
The Cameron Faculty Development Grant Program has been established to support faculty or groups of faculty in acquiring new pedagogical techniques/information or in learning a discipline not primary to their field. Primary consideration will be given to proposals that are in line with Cameron University's initiatives and allow for the sharing of resources or relevant knowledge on campus. Based on these primary grant evaluation criteria, faculty development grants continue to assist faculty or groups of faculty (and ultimately students) in acquiring new pedagogical techniques/information or in learning a discipline not primary to their field, emphasize cross-disciplinary activities, and significantly impact courses which are in place. The amount available for 2017-2018 is $12,500.
Serving as a clearinghouse, the Office of Academic Affairs routes the formal Faculty Development Grant request to the administrative units within the University for review and approval.
