Endowed Professional Development Funds (EPDF)


Proposals are evaluated on the basis of potential benefit for academic programs and/or for the professional development of faculty not funded by other sources.
Although the types of activities listed for this fund are broadly defined, preference is given to those proposals which honor the College's commitment to academic excellence, such as the following:

  1. production of grant proposals for major projects requiring outside funding;
  2. curriculum development which undertakes extensive revision and produces significant improvements;
  3. faculty retraining which enables and promotes necessary and important curricular renovation.

Applicants must provide evidence that the project proposed is possible only with the aid of faculty development endowment funds.
