As part of our commitment to faculty development as teachers and innovators, the FLC administration has set aside faculty development money to be disbursed to faculty who submit quality proposals.
While the established Faculty Development Grants Committee for Traditional Scholarship and Research (TS/R) emphasizes personal scholarship intended for external professional dissemination, the Faculty Development Grants Committee for Teaching Innovation, Pedagogy, and Assessment (TIPA) emphasizes activities that will primarily result in innovations intended for dissemination to the Fort Lewis College community.
This money intends to initiate projects that result in a sustainable, long-term program change or a faculty member's long-term professional development concerning teaching innovation, pedagogy, and assessment. This fund is not intended to be the source of continuous or ongoing funding for any project or activity. Proposals for one-time events or activities that do not have a longer-term development impact will not be funded.
All applicants who receive funding must submit a brief online report by the end of the funding cycle (report due by December 31 for activities July 1-December 15; report due by June 30 for activities December 16-June 30) regardless of whether the funds were used.
All funds must be spent by the end of the cycle. Please submit this report on time to ensure the applicant is considered for future funding.

Equipment purchased using faculty development grant funds is the property of FLC and must be returned to the instructor's Department Chair (or equivalent) for reallocation if the instructor leaves FLC.
Please note that the TIPA and TS/R committees will not fund salaries for faculty or students, although the Foundation may.
For grant requests that include paying for services (such as interview transcription) provided by individuals not employed at FLC, the applicant must confirm that the service provider is set up as a vendor for FLC. If the service provider is not already an FLC vendor, the applicant will need to go through the process of setting up the service provider as a vendor in the FLC system. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions.
Hardware purchased with FDG or Foundation funding does not become part of the College refresh program.
Aside from FDG and Foundation funding criteria, all software purchases must meet institutional requirements outlined by IT and Academic Affairs.
To consider funding for the purchase of software for instructional or research use, FDG and the FLC Foundation need confirmation that this software purchase meets those requirements; this step must be completed before FDG/Foundation reviews your proposal.
