Faculty Development Grant
Purpose and Scope
The Cameron University 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, especially those that facilitate synchronous and/or asynchronous distance education, emphasize cross-disciplinary activities, and significantly impact courses which are in place or in development.
The applicant will submit a formal application by completing ALL sections of the grant application form to the Office of Academic Affairs through the Department Chair and the Dean/Director. The proposal will be reviewed by the Cameron University Faculty Development Committee. Based on the recommendation of the Faculty Development Committee, the final approving authority for the application is the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The following forms and respective guidelines should be used in preparing and submitting a Faculty Development Grant.
