Library Professional Development

Changes Coming Soon

We are in the process of updating this information.  Please contact your Department Head for all Professional Development requests pertaining to Fiscal Year 20.

Funding Overview

Librarians and unclassified staff members are granted professional development funds each fiscal year in which budgetary support is available. The current funding model is available below. Note that the funding model can change in subsequent fiscal years.

  • Base Allocation -- $900
  • Additional Allocation: librarians working towards continuing contract --  $300
  • Additional Allocation: teaching UNV101 -- $250

Additional allocations might be granted via the Supplemental Travel Grant Program, or at administrative discretion. 

Demystifying the Process


Authorization. All staff need to receive approval for professional development and/or administrative travel from their Department Head, regardless of the cost of the travel. Department Heads will then enter the approved travel into the official spreadsheet.


Reimbursement.  If you need to be reimbursed for travel expenses, you can do so via Chrome River.   You should use ULK715 as the default allocation and use the activity code for your department. Activity Codes are available from your Department Head or the Dean's Office.
