Apologies for cross-posting

I trust many of you received this message earlier this afternoon from the Associate Provost for Faculty, Sandra Joireman. I’d like to emphasize that the grants described below are available to SPCS adjunct faculty. Sandra approached me during the SPCS faculty meeting earlier this month to re-iterate her understanding that UR has a single faculty, and SPCS adjuncts are a subset of UR faculty. So when you see something from Sandra that includes the phrase “available to all faculty,” that means SPCS adjunct faculty, too. We should see ourselves as members of the University faculty.

I’d also like to draw your attention to the Application for Faculty Professional Development for Teaching (FPDT) at https://provost.richmond.edu/faculty-development/faculty-development-and-grants/fpdt-application.html. These funds are specifically for professional development opportunities that will improve your teaching: “The purpose of Faculty Professional Development for Teaching (FPDT) is to support faculty and those staff involved in our teaching and academic programs, either individuals or groups, who wish to develop their teaching skills, enhance their practice of teaching, or to learn or expand their understanding of best practices. Funds may be used to attend professional conferences or otherwise participate in professional development aimed at enhancing teaching.”

As we continue sharing best practices in adult teaching and learning, we might also start recommending professional development opportunities that could be funded by UR. It would be quite exciting to see SPCS adjunct faculty seeking University funds for professional development in teaching!

Have a good weekend!

Subject: [AllFaculty-list] Course enhancement and curricular transformation grants

Hello everyone,

I hope your semesters are going well.  I want to draw your attention to the  Course Enhancement Grant proposals and Curriculum and Course Transformation Grant proposals on the Provost’s website.  These are available to all faculty.    Course Enhancement Grants can fund things like ticket purchases and transportation for students.  Course transformation grants are for significant changes to existing courses.

Applications for funding to be used in the spring semester should be submitted by November 1. Applications for funding to be used in the fall semester should be submitted by March 1. Requests for exceptions to these deadlines will be considered on a case-by-case basis and should be addressed to, Stephen Long,  chair of the Faculty Development Committee.  You can find the grant information and application forms through the link below.
