Faculty Development Programs

  • Keeler Intrauniversity Professorships The purpose of this program is to provide faculty members an opportunity to strengthen their knowledge of an academic specialty, to broaden or achieve greater depth in a defined field of study, or to achieve competence in a new area of scholarly endeavor.
  • Big XII Faculty Fellowship Program This program offers faculty the opportunity to travel to institutions in the Big XII Conference to exchange ideas and research.
  • Senior Administrative Fellows Program The University of Kansas Senior Administrative Fellows program is based on the philosophy from the American Council on Education (ACE) fellows. KU has a wealth of talent within its faculty ranks, however, few faculty have the luxury of taking an entire year off to participate in such excellent programs as the ACE Fellows.
  • Sabbatical Leave Faculty members interested in applying for a sabbatical leave should consult the Board of Regents and University guidelines and policies concerning sabbatical leaves found in the link above.
