Application Procedures for Faculty:
Support from DOF for Faculty Development Leave
The Dean of Faculties receives funding from the Association of Former Students and the Provost’s Office to support faculty who go on faculty development leave. Funds for the faculty development program are distributed to the college and the college has full discretion on how they use the funds.
We also receive some funding from the Texas A&M Foundation to help faculty who receive awards or opportunities that commit the individual to travel and live outside of College Station (e.g., Fulbright, Guggenheim, etc.). The moneys from the Foundation are allocated on a first come basis to faculty for whom accepting an award means also incurring in a substantive expense above and beyond the support received from the award, their department, or their college.
If you receive a Fulbright, Guggenheim, or other prestigious award that fails to cover all your expenses you may inquire directly to the Dean of Faculties for the availability of funding to help you out.
The Office of the Dean of Faculties will be hosting a series of informational sessions on Faculty Development Leave starting in late summer and continuing into early fall. The sessions are:
Evans Library room 204E,
TTVN-West Campus Library, Room 102, West Campus
Evans Library room 204E
TTVN-Medical Sciences Library Room 144, West Campus
Supported with funds from The Association of Former Students.
