(Article 21 of the MOA)
The MOA states that each permanent faculty member, Technician and Academic Counsellor is allotted $500 per academic year (prorated for workload) for Professional Development (PD). This particular fund is referred to as the Professional Development Expense Fund. These funds are in addition to the Professional Development Opportunity Fund, which is a special pool for more expensive funding requests and which is administered by the PD Committee by means of a triannual competition. This pool will allow for our limited funds to be used in support of high profile projects that will benefit both the university (via increased visibility) and the individual (full, rather than partial funding). Each successful applicant has an opportunity to receive anywhere between $500 and $2,000 in available funding.
Applications for the Professional Development Opportunity Fund are due on or before November 15, February 15 and April 15 of each year. Applications for the Professional Development Expense Fund can be submitted at any time, but the final deadline is May 31, which is the last day of the university’s fiscal year. Please note that sessional and contract academic staff are NOT eligible for PD funding. Copies of these forms are available on this website or can be obtained by request from the Office of the Vice-President, Academic.
