UPDATE: Faculty Development Funds

This is a clarification about the state of Faculty Development Funds.  There has been much speculation—and perhaps some unintentional misinformation—about the status of this issue.

  • There will be no changes to Faculty Development Funds for Academic Year 2019-2020.  Funds that have been awarded will be dispersed.


  • The Administration has asked for a delay in approving Academic Year 2020-2021 Faculty Development Funds so that they can propose modifications.


  • Any changes to the Faculty Development Funds as outlined in Article 24 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), would have to be negotiated by the Administration and AAUP-UC.

To date, AAUP-UC has received no such proposal. As always, AAUP-UC is committed to being as transparent as possible. We will notify you when we receive the proposal and will also continue to provide updates and clarifications whenever necessary.

Many thanks to those of you who have kept AAUP-UC in the loop and forwarded communications that you have received. We can’t help if we don’t know know what is happening on the ground. And thank you, as well, to the growing number of Faculty who have joined AAUP-UC in the past few weeks. Your support makes for a strong AAUP-UC, which is now more important than ever.
