Regional Grant Funds
Regional grant funds are used to recruit and retain full-time faculty or professional staff in areas of strategic benefit to a service region, or the state, as identified in an institution’s strategic plan for regional stewardship and its priority area proposal. Appropriate uses for these funds include start-up costs, salaries, benefits, travel, and other professional expenses as permitted by university policy for new faculty or professional staff positions in these targeted priority areas. The Council anticipates that the addition of newly hired faculty or staff within a given approved priority area will result in reduced departmental teaching loads and increased release time faculty to have more time for regional stewardship activities.
