Description of the Committee
The SoTL Funding Committee has one member per College elected from the full-time teaching faculty in the respective College and the CETL Associate Director for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. Terms are for three (3) years commencing at the beginning of the academic year and may be renewed. Terms are staggered so that in any given year there are normally no more than four new members.
Any member of the Committee who wishes to submit a funding proposal to the Committee will not participate in any Committee activities that involve the consideration of that funding program.
Time commitment: Meetings are held at least once during Fall semester and twice during Spring semester. Additional meetings may be scheduled as needed.
Eligibility: Any full-time teaching faculty with SoTL experience is eligible. Said experience doesn’t have to be through one of the CETL programs, but it needs to be there. When elections are run, candidates who self nominate will have to write a brief statement outlining their SoTL experience. These statements will be posted on the CETL website. Faculty will be installed on the committee only after providing their statements.
