Faculty Development Grant Program

Drake’s Faculty Development Grants, including grants for teaching and professional development and Drake Research Grants, fund a variety of activities, including travel to professional-development conferences, participating in training and development workshops, inviting speakers and facilitators to campus, and engaging in disciplinary research and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

These grants are administered by the Office of the Provost. Funding proposals are reviewed by the Faculty Development Advisory Committee, made up of faculty and staff from across the university and chaired by Craig Owens, Academic Affairs Fellow.

In light of the new Strategic Plan and the ongoing first phase of its implementation, detailed information on the faculty development grant program will be unavailable on the web until shortly after the beginning of the 2013-2014 academic year.  In the meantime, questions and comments should be sent to Craig Owens at faculty.development@drake.edu.
