Faculty Professional Development

The TT and FTNTT Geauga and RAC faculty recognize the need for faculty to continue learning and have opportunities for scholarship that encourage professional development and thereby contribute to the discipline in a meaningful way. The TT CBA stipulates the University’s ability to enhance support for Faculty professional development as part of the customary budget planning process. The FTNTT CBA states faculty are able to take part in professional development at various scholarly events and addresses Professional Development Leaves of Absence. 

The campus budget reflects funds allocated by the dean for individual professional development, e.g., conference travel, fees, and workshops. In addition, separate funds will be allocated to the budget for grants from the Geauga Research Council (GRC) and Geauga Teaching Council (GTC).
