Thursday, February 25, 2021

A Message from Wendi Dew, Assistant Vice President, Teaching and Learning, and Amy Bosley, Vice President, Organizational Development and Human Resources 

The application is now open for the Endowed Chairs Learning Leadership program, which provides recognition and funding for faculty learning experiences that positively impact student learning.

Tenure-track and Annually Appointed Faculty Are Now Eligible
Over the last few years, faculty and administrative leaders involved with the Endowed Chairs program have received feedback that our tenure-track and annually appointed faculty should be eligible to apply. Faculty Council acted on this feedback, and in addition to tenured faculty, our tenure-track and annually appointed faculty are now eligible to apply for the Endowed Chairs program. Please note that temporary faculty are not eligible to apply for Endowed Chairs. As you begin planning for your proposals, please review the Roadmap to Return Phase 3 information and ensure your plans adhere to the current guidelines.

The application deadline is Friday, April 9, 2021.
