True or False? Part-time faculty are eligible for funding for conference or workshop attendance, and for faculty development. These are not only restricted to full-timers.
True. Art. 9.5.1 covers funds “allotted for members for attendance at professional seminars, workshops, or conferences or educational exchanges.” It includes part-time members as well as full-time. However, while the maximum amount of funding for each full-time member is $1,500.00 per contract year, the maximum for part-timers is $750. Art. 9.6 covers Faculty Development funding for “activities by and for all full- and part-time members that enhance their ability to be productive and innovative professionals.”
