PURPOSE OF CAM FACULTY DEVELOPMENT GRANTS
Faculty grants programs serve full-time faculty at CU Denver College of Arts & Media (CAM). The purpose of the CAM Faculty Development Grant (FDG) Program is to:
1.) Support tenure-track/tenured faculty and clinical teaching track faculty in their research, creative and scholarly work, professional development and teaching activities.
2.) Support full-time instructors in their teaching and learning, and professional development.
3.) Increase CAM visibility regionally, nationally and internationally.
4.) Support and prepare faculty to receive competitive national grants by providing seed funding for larger projects, grant-seeking support, and opportunities for peer review.
5.) Providing criteria (3) and/or (4) above are met, visiting professors may
also apply for the funds with pre-approval from their chair.
If you must travel, all university-related off-campus research and creative activity (RCA) must be approved to be formally considered part of university duties which fall under university liability coverage and workers’ compensation. In addition, international and domestic air travel is currently suspended and approval for critical activities requiring air travel must be obtained before such travel can be initiated.
Any reestablishment of scholarly and creative works must be balanced with the critical importance of establishing equitable and safe protocols to conduct these activities. To apply to conduct off-campus critical university research and creative activities under university coverage requires the completion of the Field/Off-Campus Application and appropriate approvals before activities commence. See: https://ucdenverdata.formstack.com/forms/field_workPlease note that all travel not-related to a Faculty Development Grant must be approved through the CAM Travel Authorization Request Form found here: https://ucdenverdata.formstack.com/forms/fy22_cam_travel_authorization_form. For travel that is related to an ORS Grant Application, you will need to complete the following sequential steps:
i. Apply for CAM Match Approval via the ORS/YUMPS Match Application: https://ucdenverdata.formstack.com/forms/fy22_cam_travel_authorization_form
ii. Upon approval, submit your Travel Request in Concur Request
iii. Once you've obtained both CAM match approval and your Concur Travel Request has been approved, submit your application to ORS for consideration.
Should you have any questions, please reach out to Theodore Edmonds.
