Appendix I
GUIDELINES FOR FACULTY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAVEL
Birmingham-Southern College provides travel funds to assist faculty attending conferences and
professional meetings. Faculty members may be reimbursed for expenses such as transportation,
lodging, and meals according to the following guidelines:
for a faculty member actively involved in a conference (such as delivering a paper, responding to a
paper, participating in a panel, serving as an officer), the College proposes to fund professional
travel up to $1200;
for a faculty member who attends a conference, the College proposes to fund travel up to $1000;
all professional travel funds will be administered through the Provost’s Office with
recommendations from the Faculty Development Committee.
As in prior years, funding for faculty professional travel continues to depend upon the availability of adequate
funds in the College budget. The Provost will continue to work with the Faculty Development Committee
throughout the year as the new guidelines are implemented.
For professional travel that exceeds the maximum allocation stated above, supplemental funds may be
requested through the Provost’s Office. The Provost may consult with the Development Committee regarding
supplemental requests, but will maintain discretion in prioritizing these requests. Faculty members may fund
more than one professional meeting with the stated allocation. As in the past, professional travel will require a
pre-trip proposal and a post-trip accounting of expenses. Travel request guidelines and travel request and
expense forms are available on the Intranet
