Unit 18 Funding Opportunity

In accordance with the current UC-AFT/UC Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), a Professional Development Fund provides Unit 18 Non-Senate Faculty (NSF) with financial support for professional development activities. As the relevant section of Article 9, Paragraph C of the MOU states, “Individual NSF will be eligible to submit requests for funding to support proposals for professional development including but not limited to professional meetings, training seminars, software and paid leave, all of which should be in support of pedagogical endeavors. Only those NSF with continuing appointments will be eligible to submit requests for paid leave.” The phrase “pedagogical endeavors” is interpreted broadly to refer to all activities and projects that contribute to the Unit 18 NSF member’s professional development and effectiveness as a teacher at UC San Diego.
