The Center for Faculty Development sponsors Faculty Development Grants, YUMPS grants, and co-sponsors The Research and Scholarship Completion Fund Grant with The Office of Research.
Faculty Development Grant
The Faculty Development Grant is an annual competition available to full-time faculty. These grants are intended to enhance the quality of teaching, research, or creative work.
Among those items to be supported in all
three categories are: (1) attending workshops and conferences related to
teaching and/or research/creative work; (2) employing student assistants
involved in research work; (3)
supporting professional development; (4) converting existing courses to newer
technologies; and (5) obtaining special equipment or software. Examples of
ineligible expenses include (1) faculty release time or salary, (2) student
tuition reimbursements, and (3) travel to attend a conference to present the
project results. Collaborative projects are encouraged.
Faculty members eligible for
these awards are those holding a full-time appointment at the CU Denver
Downtown Campus in any of the following categories: 1) tenure-track faculty;
2) tenured faculty; 3) instructor or senior instructor; or 4) clinical track. Note: Non-tenure-track faculty can only apply for projects related
to teaching unless their contracts include a stipulation that they engage in
scholarly activity. A faculty member can
receive only one Faculty Development Grant every other year; faculty members
who received a Faculty Development Grant in the summer of 2013 are ineligible
for the current competition.
