Guidelines on Receiving a Stipend:
Professional development, in general, is any activity which by design contributes directly to the expertise and/or knowledge used in one’s professional work. For this committee, “professional work” means Instruction (Teaching) at the college level.
Eligibility for Professional Development funds:
Membership in organizations relevant to profession
Attending or presenting at conferences, workshop/trainings, or colloquia relevant to profession
For other activities, the applicant must clearly explain how the activity will directly enhance your performance in the work for which you are currently hired.
While personal recreational activities—including hobbies, exercise, vacations, concerts, etc.— may contribute indirectly to one’s performance, they are not eligible for PD funding.
