The Faculty Development Fund Committee (formally RAG) is charged with the distribution of faculty development funds for faculty research and travel. Each year numerous faculty take advantage of these funds to assist them with travel to professional meetings and shows as well as for research related expenses not typically covered by program budgets. Because the demand for these funds far exceeds the fund balance, we encourage you to plan your activities early and to submit requests using the forms available on this site in advance of your travel. The FDFC committee is also charged with the distribution of Sharing the Learning (SL) funds for student research projects. Please read through the materials on this site and contact the FDFC chair if you have any questions.
