For the academic year, faculty may request a maximum of $1,800.
NOTE: This amount is based on the assumption that not all faculty request travel funds. It may be necessary, once all requests are processed, to lower the cap. Once the chair reviews requests, they will be forwarded to the dean who will also review them and decided how much money will be inserted into the departmental budget. This budget is under the discretion and authority of the department chair. Unused funds must be returned to the University at the end of the fiscal year.
There will be a two-step process:
- Each faculty member can request up to $1,800 in support. Nothing in excess of this amount will be allotted.
- After all requests are funded, additional support may be made by application directly to the dean.
Faculty members should strive to economize whenever possible. Requests for reimbursement for expenses deemed excessive, unnecessary, or frivolous will be denied. Travel supported through endowment funds or through other, non-departmental programs will be administered by the person administering the program or fund. The dean may take into consideration when allocating professional travel monies whether an individual faculty member has access to non-departmental funds.
Each faculty member should submit his or her request individually. If you are requesting funds for more than one conference, please provide details for each and indicate the total amount in each category (grand total not to exceed $1800).
