Faculty Handbook

Summer Curriculum-Related Activities

The Collective Bargaining Agreement provides for stipends during the summer for curriculum-related activities. Individuals should address their requests to the Dean. Faculty deadline is March 1. The Dean must submit requests to the Academic Vice President by March 6. An advisory group composed of up to three members from CUCAS and up to three members from the Graduate Council, with at least one representative from each school, will then review the proposals. Faculty who are awarded stipends for summer curriculum-related activities must submit a brief report to the Committee on Undergraduate Curriculum and Academic Standards and the Graduate Council in the Fall semester following completion of activities.

The basic guidelines used by the Committee on Undergraduate Curriculum and Academic Standards in reviewing summer curriculum-related activities shall include: (1) the proposals should be for curriculum development (development of courses and programs) and not for training, assessment, or promotion of programs; (2) funds can go only to full-time members of the AAUP Collective Bargaining Unit in accordance with that agreement (Article 9.11); (3) preference is given to new curriculum development over revising existing courses; (4) preference is given to those who had not received funds in recent years over those who had recently received funds; and (5) faculty who fail to file a report will not be considered for funding until such report is filed.
