A report detailing activities and their impact on instruction shall be submitted by the faculty member to the appropriate committee responsible for funding and the Vice President for Academic Affairs within ninety (90) days.

The Professional Development Committee reviews requests by faculty for funds for professional development activities, makes recommendations to the Vice President for Academic Affairs regarding those requests, and reviews policies and procedures of concern to professional development of faculty. Faculty may be approved for up to 2 requests per year, for a maximum of $1,500 for one request. The balance of $2,000 may be applied for a second request. Funding is limited, so faculty are encouraged to submit their requests early.
