Twenty-five percent (25%) of the FFR funds can be used for University initiatives.
University Initiatives should be related to enhancement of teaching and learning.
The FFR committee will have input into the design of the University initiatives. It is anticipated that the individuals bringing forth the University initiatives—presumably the Provost or other administrators at a similar level—will bring a proposal to the committee for discussion and committee input. There will be no set proposal format, and the committee will not vote on the proposal in any way.
The FFR committee will receive a report annually of the use of the funds.
If a University Initiative is funded beyond two years, it is expected that the individuals responsible for the program will seek other funding sources, such as external funding or going to budget review.
University Initiative funds may be used to partially fund a project funded by another source and to assist a project in transition to another funding source.
