Research and Professional Growth (RPG) Committee Grants

While there is overlap between the faculty development and support interests addressed through RPG and CTL and the Faculty Development Committee, there is a basic difference.

The Faculty Development Committee prefers projects that focus on building faculty expertise in teaching and facilitating learning. Projects that use faculty research skill to study and improve teaching and learning (scholarship of teaching and learning-SoTL) are particularly welcome.

RPG is charged with funding projects that will enrich the scholarly, professional, and creative interests of faculty that extend their stature beyond Furman.  Learn more on the Faculty Governance site (log-in via the MyFurman portal).
