Q1. Because the Dean’s Office and the AAC are committed to faculty development, we invite applications for faculty online conference grants up to $400. We would like to award three (3) grants each quarter or six (6) grants each semester. This will depend on the availability of funds.
All College faculty, full time and part time, are eligible to apply. Faculty housed in other UOG Colleges, Schools, and Units are not eligible for CLASS grants. A CLASS faculty member is eligible for ONE (1) online conference grant per academic year.
Following the guidelines in the CLASS Manual’s Faculty Development Policy:
1. First priority will be given to supporting faculty travel to professional meetings where they are presenting a paper.
2. Second priority will be given to supporting faculty travel for professional purposes other than presenting a paper.
3. Third priority will be given to other faculty development projects such as workshops, interdisciplinary course preparations, etc. Projects benefiting more than one division will be encouraged.
The AAC will review applications and make recommendations to the Dean and Associate Dean. University policies for purchases, payments, and reimbursements will be followed for the use of Online Conference Grant funds.
