Faculty Summer Institute call for applications

The Provost, Dr. Susan Poser, and the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, Dr. Robert Barish, are pleased to sponsor up to 17 full-time faculty members (or full-time staff as unit designees) to attend the Faculty Summer Institute (FSI), an educational teaching-and-technology event to be held at the UI Urbana campus on May 23rd and 24th at the I Hotel and Conference Center. The theme of this year’s conference is “Adapt, Evolve, Engage”.

Faculty or their designees are encouraged to apply for sponsorship by sending their name, appointment title, home unit, and a 300-word (or less) rationale for attending to Vice Provost Renee Taylor.  The rationale should emphasize how the applicant anticipates the conference will benefit teaching and the home unit. Sponsorship will cover the cost of registration ($59) and the cost of ground transportation and lodging at a recommended venue hotel.
