Policy for Faculty Development Funds

Funds to support faculty development will be made available through the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. These funds are for the purpose of improving the quality of instruction at Old Dominion University. The awards are available to all full-time faculty who are not on a terminal contract.

           After evaluation and signature by the department chair and dean, the Office of the Dean should submit a copy of the faculty member's proposal to the Faculty Senate's Faculty Status Committee. The committee's recommendations for awards will be based on overall evaluations of competing proposals. The committee will forward its recommendations, along with the evaluation of the chair and dean, to the vice provost for final review, evaluation, and determination.

           The following list provides some suggestions for funding, but it should not be considered exhaustive.

  1. Reimbursement of expenses for workshops on teaching effectiveness.

  2. Reimbursement of expenses for workshops which will make the faculty member proficient in some area and which subsequently may lead to course development.

  3. Summer stipends, which will not exceed those awarded for summer research grants, to support faculty self-study, development of instructional materials such as videos, course paks and workbooks, development of innovative educational approaches, or significant program curriculum revision.

  4. Reimbursement of expenses for guest speakers and/or consultants as related to classroom instruction.

           Faculty development funds cannot be used to support faculty attendance or presentations at conferences.

Participation in Learned Societies

The university recognizes the necessity of attendance at professional meetings and its effect upon the enhancement of good teaching and related activities. Every effort is made to have funds available to faculty members for this purpose.
