Conference participation is an important component of a faculty member’s research and professional development plan. The schools and the library each have a fund to support travel to research conferences. This fund conforms to the terms and conditions of the CBU/CBUFA collective agreement (32.3) and is intended to supplement Professional Development Funds (32.3) and external research funds available to faculty. NSGEU instructors involved in research are also eligible for travel to research conferences through this fund. More details and application forms can be obtained from the deans’ administrative assistants.
