PD Fund Update
As of April 1, 2023 the rates for travel per diems and mileage have increased! Please make sure to use the new updated travel claim form after your PD activity, which you can access off the CCFA Website. These amounts will be made retroactive to April 1 for any applications that have already been approved.
We’ve also head from many faculty members that our forms are difficult to find and use. No one likes having to create combined PDFs of all of their documents after emailing them to their chairs and deans. WE HEAR YOU!
The CCFA office staff and PD Chair are hard at work considering the best way to consolidate the process into a fully web-based form. We recognize that this may cause some challenges for some of our members, but on the balance think it will better support the RAPID processing and approval of PD Applications in the future. Look for some of these changes to be rolled out in summer for testing and to be deployed to all faculty in September!
If you have specific feedback about PD, we’d love to hear it, please email Martha McAlister or consider filling out our communications survey online.
