The university allots a total of $7,500 for faculty research per fiscal year, including summer sessions. All faculty are eligible to submit proposals for research grants, but priority will be given to full-time faculty, senior lecturers and part-time faculty with five years of teaching experience at Notre Dame de Namur University. There is no restriction on the number of times a faculty member may apply, but priority is given to those who have not previously received a research grant.
Faculty whose work involves human subjects must submit their research proposals for approval by the Institutional Review Board (IRB). As stated on the research grant application form, documentation of IRB approval must be submitted to the committee before funds are awarded. Visit the IRB page for further information on IRB policies.

For the 2015-2016 academic year, a total of $300 is available to each full-time faculty member for travel to conferences, $800 if presenting a paper or giving a workshop. Check back as we update this information based on the language of the faculty union contract.
The university awards a total of nine (9) units of release time per academic year for full-time faculty and senior lecturers to pursue research or creative activities. The Faculty Development Committee usually awards three units of release time to the three successful candidates. Note that, for budgetary and scheduling reasons, the applicant’s department chair and Dean must concur with the application.
The university makes an award of $1,000 to a faculty member in order to enhance the teaching/learning experience at the university, to honor excellence in teaching, and to encourage new and creative ways of achieving excellence in teaching. The successful applicant also receives a plaque, which is presented at Commencement.
