Professional Development Funds for Lecturers

Posted in Membership Information

To support the personal and professional growth of lecturers, and to enhance the academic mission of the university, the LEO-UM contract provides a Lecturer Professional Development Fund on each campus. All lecturers not on full layoff are eligible to apply for grants from the fund. The maximum award to a lecturer in an academic year is $900. Decisions about the distribution of awards are made by a committee on each campus. (See Article XXIV: Professional Development.)
