Every May, the Faculty Center hosts the Summer Faculty Development Conference on Monday through Thursday the week following final exams. Full-time faculty members from all colleges submit proposals to transform courses or programs according to goals and objectives related to a defining theme. Following full participation and completion of deliverables, faculty members will receive an $800 grant.

We are pleased to announce the call for proposals for the 2019 UCF Summer Faculty Development Conference that will be held May 6-9, 2019. Please note that the conference is the week following final exams and graduation. The theme for this year’s conference is “Teaching Across Modalities and Spaces.”

Please Note: New faculty members and first-time participants will be given priority if the number of proposals exceeds the budget limit, and we will be unable to fund projects that overlap significantly with a previously funded Summer Conference project.

Proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2019. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by March 15, 2019. Please submit your proposal for one of the tracks to the contact listed below.
