Marietta College Faculty Development Committee
Faculty Development programs are designed to help strengthen faculty members' disciplinary ties by supporting projects in the "scholarship of discovery" (research) and the "scholarship of teaching" (ways to transmit knowledge and excite future scholars). The projects should benefit the faculty member and support the college's core values.
Awards are competitive and recommendations submitted to the Provost are based on proposals submitted to the Faculty Development Committee.
The Faculty Development Committee will accept electronic submission for:
- Sabbatical proposals
- Research Award
- Load Reduction Programs
- Professional Improvement Grants (summer support)
If you choose to submit your proposal in hard copy, deliver 10 copies to Tim Catalano, Thomas 205.
- Submitted materials should be in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel or Adobe Acrobat (pdf) format. Submission in other file formats may delay or prevent consideration of the proposal. If possible, all materials for the submission should be included in a single file.
- A single copy of the electronic version of the proposal should be
sent to the chair of the Faculty Development Committee, Tim Catalano (firstname.lastname@example.org). If the attached file can be opened, you will receive a return e-mail confirming the receipt of the proposal.
- The e-mail accompanying the attached file should clearly state what type of proposal is being submitted.
If you have any questions about the electronic submission procedure, please contact Tim Catalano by e-mail (email@example.com) or by phone x4636.
