New Reimbursement Procedures for Faculty Grants and Conference Travel
Beginning immediately, the Assoc. Dean for Faculty Development will handle all procedures for reimbursement of expenses related to grants overseen by the Committee on Faculty Resources: Faculty Research and Creative Work Grants, Mellon Grants, and Conference Travel Allocations. Please review the reimbursement procedures for each type of grant below.

Fridays @ 4 for 2014-2015: Seeking Presenters
Apply to present by contacting email@example.com.
All faculty are encouraged to consider presenting as part of "Fridays @ 4," the faculty's lecture series for itself. The aim of "Fridays @ 4" is to provide an opportunity for faculty to present "work in progress" in front of a supportive, interdisciplinary, non-specialist audience. Work at any stage in any field is welcome, however, "Fridays @ 4" is especially useful for new, experimental projects, projects that need a kick-start, or a presentation that would benefit from a dress rehearsal. "Fridays @ 4" has two presentations each term. Refreshments and camaraderie are served at each. Please contact me if you have questions or would like to present.
Faculty Fellows for December Travel CoursesThe Stellyes Center for Global Studies, in conjunction with the Committee on Faculty Resources, seeks to promote faculty participation in study-travel courses as a professional development opportunity. Several faculty will be leading international study-travel courses during Fall 2014, which include an overseas component during December. You may request funds to join one of these groups as a "Faculty Fellow."
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately if interested.
