Travel Fund Criteria for Part-time Faculty
Part-time faculty members willing to represent iSchool at professional conferences, meetings, and events
In exchange for representing iSchool and/or meeting with iSchool students and alumni at professional events, the school’s Director will consider a proposal to reimburse expenses, including mileage (up to 250 miles RT), one hotel night if attending an evening event (up to $275), and conference registration if conducting a trend-spotting meeting.
In order to qualify for iSchool financial support, a part-time faculty member would be expected to participate in one or more of these activities:
- Attend a lunch or other informal get-together for iSchool students and alumni at a professional meeting or conference
- Conduct a pre-conference trend-spotting meeting with current iSchool students to introduce them to the conference and highlight the not-to-miss sessions and events
- Meet with current students, prospective students, or alumni at a non-conference recruiting or social event organized by iSchool
