James Madison University

Faculty Development Committee

The Faculty Development Committee is comprised of one faculty representative from each of the academic units in the College. Faculty serving on the Committee are not permitted to submit proposals for educational leave or research and teaching grants during their time of Committee service. The Faculty Development Committee solicits proposals for educational leaves, teaching grants and research grants, and then makes recommendations to the Dean regarding the funding of proposals. The Committee is also charged with selecting the College's Outstanding Teacher, Madison Scholar, and recipient of the Award for Outstanding Service from nominations forwarded by the individual academic units. Recommendations by the Committee come directly to the Dean for decisions.
