The Teaching Institute is FIT's internal funding entity for faculty development. The program is designed to help faculty pursue their professional goals as teachers artists, designers, practitioners and scholars. By awarding funding for proposals, the program seeks to foster excellence and innovation in the teaching/learning process. The program is administered through the Office of Academic Affairs and applications are reviewed by the Teaching Institute Committee.

The Committee meets on the following dates for the 2013-14 academic year: September 17, October 15, November 19, February 18, March 11, April 15, May 13.
Please note: The Teaching Institute booklet states that “no project will be funded retroactively”. In other words, only projects/travel that take place after the committee has had the chance to meet/vote will be considered for funding.If you have further questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
