Faculty Professional Development Assignments allow faculty time to advance work on research and scholarship that is difficult or impossible to perform in conjunction with one’s on-campus responsibilities. FPDAs provide faculty with a release from teaching and service responsibilities, however the responsibility to continue mentoring current graduate students and post-doctoral research associates remains. Professional development assignments may also entail international travel and/or familiarization with new or specialized training in or related to the faculty member’s discipline. FPDAs are expected to result in publications, grants, scholarly innovation and enhanced learning opportunities for students.
