Faculty Start-up, Retention and Retraining Costs
This program provides funds for equipment, supplies, and personnel necessary to recruit the best research faculty possible, and to provide adequate resources for an effective start to their research program. Normally, commitments for new faculty start-up packages are negotiated between the Vice President for Research and the deans and department chairs prior to a faculty member's arrival on campus.
Funds for retention and retraining may also be requested for individual faculty by chairs/unit directors through the dean of the college. Faculty salary and faculty salary supplements are not permitted with these funds. These funds are provided for specific needs and must be expended within the negotiated funding period.
