Junior faculty are encouraged to attend the poster session for the 2012-2013 Faculty Development Grant Program(FDGP)co-hosted by The Office of the Provost and the Faculty Senate. The FDGP awards provides seed money for research, teaching and service related projects designed to enhance the effectiveness of individual faculty members by providing funds for them to undertake new efforts for which time or money is not generally available.
