Call for Travel Requests

Teaching Professor Professional Development Travel

September 12, 2017


Teaching Professors and Senior Teaching Professors in the College of Arts and Sciences are invited to apply for funds to support travel to professional conferences between October 26, 2017 and June 30, 2018.

Travel requests should be made using this form on Nexus.  The form may be located on the Nexus site under College of Arts and Sciences.

Deadline for requests: October 16, 2017.

Department chairs will need to approve the request, but may leave the amount approved blank.  Deadline for department chair approval: October 18, 2017.

Funds are limited and based on a gift to the college.  We expect to be able to fund or partially fund a handful of travel plans.  The funds will not draw from the departmental travel allocation.

We are assessing need in order to make a case for increased funds; please do apply if a professional conference would support your professional development.

We will prioritize travel that is relevant to your teaching.  We will also take into consideration the availability of other funds within the department.  

Award date: October 24, 2017
