ACM Advisory Board of Deans Faculty Development Grants
Grants of up to $2,000 to support a meeting, conference or workshop for ACM faculty members. Most recently, this program has funded classicists, economists, computer center directors, mathematicians, anthropologists, Latin Americanists and theater directors. Meetings may focus on such themes as disciplinary or interdisciplinary pedagogy, course or curriculum development, or emerging scholarship; or campus-wide concerns such as the use of information technology in scholarship and teaching, helping students develop as competent thinkers and communicators, or the development of institutional structures that support interdisciplinarity. Interested faculty should contact Adrienne Christiansen prior to proposal development.
