Beginning in 2016-17, the Faculty Development Council (FDC) will oversee the allocation of funding to support teaching, including (but not limited to) course development, pedagogical and curricular innovation, and advising. The FDC is interested in innovative projects from individuals or groups of faculty that will strengthen current pedagogical skills, or expand the range of teaching and/or advising capabilities.
We recognize that teaching and research interact in important and complicated ways. Funding for scholarly research can be sought from the Research Council. If you wish to propose a project to the FDC that has strong connections to your research, please consider consulting with the chair of the FDC (and/or the chair of the Research Council) and be sure to explain the specifically pedagogical benefits of the project in your application. For a list of all internal funding opportunities for faculty, please refer to the Dean of Faculty website
There are three forms of support available to Colgate faculty, including funds for (1) professional development for teaching and pedagogy, (2) course development, and (3) faculty travel related to course and professional development.
