Artists have quite often pushed the boundaries of convention to create a statement of their own particular vision. This is especially true when one considers the advances in digital technologies that can be used in the art-making process. Beyond new developments in software devoted to artistic expression, advances in communication technologies have forged an entirely new arena for artists to display and disseminate their work. Many universities can quickly and effectively share live performance and video with other universities around the globe over Internet 2, creating in the process a virtual performance venue as well. The Film & Media Arts Building, will provide a space for multi-media explorations in film, art, sculpture, dance, and music. We welcome you to explore the College’s engagement with innovation in the Arts.
Dean’s Travel Fund
The Dean’s Travel Fund awards matching grants for tenure-line and auxiliary faculty (.50 FTE and above) to present their research and teach nationally and internationally. Additionally, for tenure-line faculty a smaller amount of money is available for service obligations if elected to an officer-level position in a professional organization.
The application form (along with a copy of the formal invitation to present/perform or a link to the conference/presenting organization’s website listing you as a presenter/performer) should be completed electronically by the faculty member and then forwarded to the Chair/Director for their approval and departmental allocation amount. Please note that the Dean’s Travel Fund can only match up to the amount that is awarded from the Department/School.
The Chair/Director will then forward the application and electronic copy of the invitation to present/perform (including the Chair/Director comments and departmental allocation amount) to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
For questions about the Dean’s Travel Fund, please contact email@example.com.
