Interested in developing a short-term learning experience abroad or better incorporating writing into your courses? Do you seek help on conducting research or need funding to support a service-learning opportunity for students?

Many offices and units provide advice and institutional and monetary support to faculty and staff in a broad range of professional development areas, including:

  • Research, scholarship, and creative activity
  • Teaching and learning development
  • Administrative and leadership development
  • Student assistantships
  • Course, program, and curricular planning
  • Community, public-policy, and international engagement

In addition to these resources, academic deans and administrative directors can provide logistical and monetary support for members of their units. In particular, faculty seeking resources for travel to academic conferences should contact their dean’s office in addition to the other resources included on this site.
