Through the generous donation of the Bernard A. Dahlem family in behalf of former Professor and Chair John E. Heer of the UofL Civil Engineering Department, the Dean’s Office offers Speed School of Engineering faculty and staff up to $1,000 per fiscal year for approved professional development activities. These funds can be used, for example, to present research accomplishments at conferences, attend important workshops, or participate in career development programs. Prior approval is required from both your department chair/head and the Dean’s office. These funds are available for one activity per fiscal year and can be used to reimburse associated expenses including lodging, registration, travel and food. A faculty or staff member should first seek resources from their department chair or unit director before asking for Heer funds. Details of the policy are described in the link below.
ALL International Travel must be pre-approved. Please fill out the required forms and provide the requested documentation to the Dean’s Office for approval. Once approved, the forms will be sent to the SPD Business Center for processing and further approval. Do not send any paperwork to the International Center. All paperwork will be uploaded in the Business Center at the time of your request.
If you have any questions, please contact us in the Business Center.
