Professional Development Funds and Research Activities

Faculty members may use professional development funds to cover some expenses related to research.

Professional development funds may be used, among other things, for:

  • Expenses related to archival information, books, journals, magazines, reference materials, and related subscriptions;
  • Tuition and course costs, when not funded elsewhere and when directly related to maintaining or upgrading employment-related skills;
  • Fees for conference registrations, seminars, and training programs;
  • Eligible electronic equipment sourced through CUE’s IT department;
  • Professional memberships; and
  • Travel expenses to attend professional development activities.

CUE has released a policy and two procedures regarding the use of professional development funds. Please click the links below to learn more.
