Faculty Program Fund Request Form
Faculty Program Fund Request Form - FACULTY NEED TO CONFIRM A ROOM RESERVATION WITH HEATHER PRICE IN THE STUDENT SERVICES SUITE BEFORE COMPLETING THISThe Faculty Program Committee reviews requests for support from the Faculty Program Fund. In general, this fund is understood to cover course-related events, including (but not limited to) speakers, performers, films, and field trips. All Waterbury Campus fulltime and adjunct faculty can apply for support from this fund. The Faculty Program Fund has two goals: to enrich the classroom experience and to enhance the academic environment of the whole campus by opening course-related programs to the larger campus community whenever possible.
We anticipate that the total budget for most programs will be in the range of $100 - $300, but we will certainly consider requests both smaller and larger. The application should justify the expense in terms of anticipated attendance and impact. The proposal should also be particularly clear about the ways that the program will benefit the course and/or contribute to the enrichment of the larger campus community.
In cases of exceptionally large requests, the committee can assist the instructor to realize an ambitious goal by recommending alternate sources for partial funding. Partnering with instructors in other courses or other campus groups helps build a larger and more diverse audience for a more expensive program.
