Discussion involved Dan Richard speaking about future direction of the FEC since Summer Teaching Grants (STGs) no longer exist. Suggestions included:
- Reviewing applications for Summer Teaching Innovation Institute (STI) – Dan suggested that 2-3 committee members would assist the Office of Faculty Enhancement (OFE) in reviewing these applications. The committee agreed to this.
- Reviewing applications for the Faculty Fellows Program (FFP) – The FFP program was a result of more available funds as a result of elimination of the STG program. Two faculty members will be funded as a result of this. The program consists of a stipend, course buyout, and travel allowance for the fellows to attend a conference to further develop themselves. He suggested that 2-3 committee members would assist OFE in reviewing these applications. The committee agreed to this.
- Committee members could work with OFE to provide workshops on a variety of topics. The committee agreed to table this and discuss at the next meeting
