Professional Development Committee
The Professional Development Committee meets twice a month, university calendar and other professional obligations permitting. In order for applications for grants to be given their proper consideration by members of the committee, applications must be received by the chair one week prior to a scheduled meeting. Applications which do not meet this time frame will be carried over to the next meeting. All applications are considered in the order in which they are received. No other prioritizing mechanisms are used.
There will be limited funding for Categories 1 and 3, and no funding for Category 2.
Proposals submitted to the PDC must meet the following criteria:
- For all categories, proposals must be received by the Chair of the Professional Development Committee prior to the date of the activity/program/event/course for which you are requesting support.
- Submission of 1 original and 7 copies of the completed proposal to the chair of the Professional Development Committee.
- Copies must be front and back.
- Incomplete proposals will only be considered at the discretion of the committee for extenuating circumstances. A justification must be provided as to why the proposal is incomplete, otherwise incomplete proposals will be sent back to be completed.
For all categories, proposals must be received by the Chair of the Professional Development Committee prior to the activity/program/event/course for which you are requesting support.
Proposals that do not meet the above criteria will not be considered.
All awards are contingent upon budgetary allocations.
If for any reason changes need to be made relative to an approved project, those changes must be approved by the Professional Development Committee prior to expenditures of any funds related to the altered project.
