Scholarly and creative activities including:
- Travel for participation in professional meetings
- Research/Professional enhancement experiences including equipment (Including related/justified travel.)
- Project grants
Teaching release time for research and/or scholarly activities as outlined in Article 7.
Scholarship: The University also recognizes the need to support faculty scholarship activities and may substitute scholarship duties for a portion of a full-time annual or full-time quarterly faculty teaching assignment. Such scholarship substitutions will be made by the University to individual faculty assignments for the purposes of strengthening selected academic programs or faculty development. This substitution shall be granted to individuals only. Annually, the University shall offer 18 course releases (3-4 unit courses) for engagement in scholarship, only. Faculty will apply to the Faculty Development Committee detailing the scholarly activity and expected progress to arise from the requested reassignment time. Faculty will also provide copies of their applications to the chair of their academic division and the dean of their college. The Faculty Development Committee shall review the applications and award course reassignments based on criteria developed jointly by a four person committee comprised of the two college deans and two representatives from the Union collective bargaining team. A report on the outcome(s) of work performed during the release is to be submitted to the dean within three months of the affected term of release. No departments shall be granted a department wide reduction in load. Division chairs will assign appropriate teaching and scholarship activity assignments when they submit the Schedule of Classes to the College Dean for approval.
