The QIC award for Global Engagement (QIC-GE) is intended for DePaul tenured and tenure-track faculty members who have a concrete plan to engage with an international partner institution or faculty member to enhance their teaching practice. Proposals must contain an explicit plan for international mobility. Mobility can be either outbound only (DPU faculty traveling to international partner), inbound only (international partner coming to DPU), or, preferably, a combination of inbound and outbound. The latter option does not require synchronicity of travel.
Global Engagement grants provide up to $4,000 in funding that can be utilized in various ways, for example: pay for replacement cost for the faculty member; travel expenses for the DPU faculty or partner faculty; housing costs (see below for more examples). Faculty interested in pursuing these opportunities can contact the office of the Associate Provost for Global Engagement for assistance.
Eligibility for faculty development grants is limited to full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty. Faculty may apply for one Global Engagement Award per academic year. In selecting awards, the council takes into account three priorities: demands on strategic plans and initiatives, applicant's record of completing projects, and how the project sustains the university. Implementation of global engagement experiences for faculty may involve course scheduling and faculty compensation issues. For this reason it is imperative that the faculty member coordinates with the Chair/Dean and the budget manager of the unit as appropriate. Evidence of this coordination must be provided as a detailed support letter from the Department Chair/Dean, as appropriate, with the application.
Applications are accepted in the Fall and Winter with deadlines of October 15th and March 15th, respectively.
