OVERVIEW

Academic Staff Development Program

The Board of Regents established a Professional Development Program for Academic Staff that began with first proposals funded on 1 July 1985. The University of Wisconsin System (UWS) Academic Staff Professional Development Program was established to facilitate individual professional development/training that contributes to the needs of the institution for improved service and flexiblity.

Professional development/training opportunities are an important component of an effective personnel management system.  Such opportunities enable staff to increase their effectiveness by expanding knowledge in their areas of expertise, refining and developing skills, and enhancing staff morale.  The critical functions performed by academic staff require that professional development/training opportunities be facilitated for institutional as well as indidvidual reasons.

The program has the following goals:

  • Individual Professional Development.  The program will provide an opportunity for academic staff to enhance their effectiveness in meeting changing needs and roles in higher education.  This is a concern for higher education, for UW System institutions, and is a particular concern of individual academic staff members in their own career development.
  • Improved Program Quality.  Staff development opportunities will contribute to improving program vitality during a period of anticipated resource constraints and changing administrative and educational needs. 
  • Improved Institutional Effectiveness.  The staff development program will enhance and refine abilities most directly related to the Values and Mission, 2016 Strategic Plan Goals, and/or special priorities (LEAP and Diversity / Inclusive Excellence) of the UW System institution with which the staff member is affiliated.

One copy of the proposal must be recieved in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, 21 April 2017. Electronic or paper copies will be accepted.

The Academic Staff Development Committee solicits projects that occur between 1 July 2017 and 1 June 2018.  The Committee may release a separate Request for Proposals in fall to support shorter project durations and professional development activities IF all funds are not allocated in the spring competition.

NEED FOR TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES

Mastery of Content Area: It is important that all academic staff be knowledgeable and well trained in their area of expertise.  All academic staff members are encouraged to develop research, hone technical skills, and/or assess programs.

Professional and Program Renewal:  To be competent and effective, academic staff must stay current in the latest research and/or technical innovations. 

Retraining: It is essential to retrain academic staff to meet new demands requiring critical specialties and skills.

Human Relations: Academic staff must effectively communicate with all students, faculty, staff and other professionals in order to contribute to a multicultural environment.

OBJECTIVES

Academic staff must have opportunities for development/training experiences to maintain and enhance the quality of their professional contributions to this institution.  Specifically, participating in professional development programs should assist academic staff in:

  • Responding to the changing needs and interests of students;
  • Developing experise in new teaching techniques and changing technology;
  • Increasing personal productivity through professional renewal;
  • Contributing to institutional flexibility; and/or
  • Contributing to civic activities as defined in the mission of the Unversity of Wisconsin-Whitewater (UWW).

CATEGORIES OF ACTIVITIES

Methods of achieving the objectives stated above include, but are not limited to:

  • Expanding professional expertise by participating in professional organizations, attending workshops and seminars, taking classes, completing scholarly research, and attending professional conferences where significant training will occur.
  • Renewing professional commitment by developing programs for professional organizations, presenting papers at conferences, publishing in professional journals, and developing workshops and seminars.
  • Arranging for external consultants to lead workshops focused on the professional development/training of academic staff.  Students and faculty may be secondary targets for the event/activity.  However, the primary focus must be on the professional development of non-instructor and/or instructional academic staff.
  • Arranging for job exchanges or internships for individuals or entire units within the institution, with other areas of operation, or between institutions.
  • Training to develop or expand skills beyond the individual's area of expertise or discipline that will enhance the mission of the University or connect to a special priority areas (LEAP and Diversity / Inclusive Excellence).
  • Supporting tuition reimbursement for coursework within or outside the current assignment.  The investigator must justify and document the deapartment/unit, division/college, and/or University need for the training.  Specifically, this would:
    • Help academic staff acquire more flexibility in assignments.
    • Make cross assignments possible when demand in some areas fluxuates.
    • Develop specialized skills for which their department or college has expanding or fluctuating needs. 

ELIGIBILITY

In order to be eligible for the program, applicants must:

  • Possess academic staff status with at least a .50 FTE appointment.

BACKGROUND AND OVERVIEW

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater seeks proposals for the Student Technology Fee award competition to support student access to and accessiblity of technology.

In the 1993-95 biennium, the University of Wisconsin-Madison proposed, and the Legislature approved, a 2.5% tuition increase, of which 1.7% was for technology.  The technology fee was then applied to all campuses during the 1995-97 biennium at the rate of 1% in the first year and 2% each year thereafter.  This fee is designated as the Student Technology Fee.  Students at all campuses pay this fee.  The Student Technology Fee is a tuition surcharge, which is part of UW System's GPR/Fee budget.  As such, it is subject to policies for approval and allocation of GPR/Fee funds.  The Student Technology Fee is intended to provide students with additional services, and should not replace existing funds intended to support student technology.

ELIGIBILITY AND CONDITIONS

In order to be eligible for a Student Technology Fee award, applicants must represent a department, unit, sub-department, College, division, committee, or organization.

Applications will be considered only if:

  • Applicants meet all eligibility requirements and conditions.  In order to be eligible, faculty and staff must possess a FTE position of 0.5 or greater at the time of submission, during the grant period, and for one year following the award.
  • Proposals are complete.  Incomplete proposals will be disqualified and returned to the applicant without review.
  • Applicants propose projects that currently are not fully funded by other campus, UW System, and/or external funding programs.

ELIGIBLE EXPENSE CATEGORIES

Projects funded by Student Technology Fees should concentrate on areas that benefit all students.  Below are examples of appropriate and inappropriate Student Technology Fee expenditures.

Examples of appropriate Student Technology Fee expenditures:

  • Expenses related to general access computer laboratories such as:
    • Adding staff for computer help desks and other support services to better assist students and increase hours of operation for computer labs.
    • Upgrading current computer workstations or adding workstations.
    • Adding hardware including printers, scanners, etc.
    • Adding improved or upgraded software to general access computersor the comprehensive University network.
  • Expenses related to student access improvements such as:
    • Implementing/improving high speed network access for students.
    • Upgrading or improving local area and wide area networking, including internet access.
    • Online resources for students.
    • General access computers, video projectors, and related equipment and supplies used for student class presentations.
  • Expenses related to training the students by enhancing the curriculum through computer hardware, software, and new technologies.
  • Expenses related to improving the level of technology for students, including students with disabilities.

Examples of expenditures that are normally considered inappropriate for Student Technology Fee funds:

  • Equipment and supplies used exclusively by faculty and staff.
  • Computer hardware, software, or upgrades for faculty/staff offices and faculty/staff-only workstations.
  • Department-specific or limited-access equipment or technology which has limited or little potential for student use.

If the UW-Whitewater Student Technology Fee Review Committee recommends and the Chancellor approves expenditures from the list of inappropriate expenditures or which may be questioned for appropriateness, a rationale of how the expenditures benefit students must be submitted to ORSP and will be kept on file for future audits.

SELECTION AND EVALUATION CRITERIA

The Student Technology Fee Review Committee will review the applications and forward funding recommendations to the Chancellor.  The Chancellor will make the final award decisions, and will notify the applicants directly.

Proposals will be evaluated upon the criteria listed below:

  • PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The degree to which the project, objectives, and key personnel are thoroughly described and justified.
  • PROJECT IMPACT [BENEFITS]:  Benefits to students are thoroughly described and compelling.
  • PROJECT IMPACT [OPEN STUDENT ACCESS]: The degree to which the applicant presents a compelling argument that the Student Technology Fee purchase will enhance access (i.e., general access computing, student access improvements, training the student populations, and/or improving the level of technology for students, including students with disablities).
  • PROJECT COSTS: The degree to which project costs are reasonable, fully described, and appropriate given the level of impact and benefit.
  • FUNDING REQUEST:  The degree to which the applicant has justified the funding request (e.g., indicates why such expenses are not covered by the Department's operating budget).  If the project includes recurring/ongoing costs, the applicant explains how the technology will be funded/sustained in the future.

See the full request for proposal (RFP) for additional information and submission requirements.
