Prior to submitting a presentation proposal or paper to present at a conference faculty members must first seek approval from their Dean and also have their Off-Campus Conference, Seminar, or Workshop Funding

To be in compliance with the travel policy set by the college, funding requests should be submitted at least 60 days prior to the activity. Funding is limited and will be approved and dispensed on a first-come, first-served basis. There are several ways that the Faculty Development Committee dispense funds to help full-time faculty attend
