Faculty can earn Professional Development Funds (PDF) for a number of reasons, including teaching writing to learn sections, teaching off-campus, etc. Because faculty do not pay taxes on the funds and the money remains a part of the State of Kansas funds, certain policies and rules control the expenditures from the Professional Development Account. These funds are held in a combined account with the Office of Continuing and Graduate Studies. All expenditures are processed through that Office for approval and for accounting purposes.
Faculty may check their Professional Development balance by logging into the Academic Administration Menu located in GUS and choosing (Miscellaneous Resources) Professional Development.
