Incentives

Trinity College of Arts & Sciences, the Provost, and the Vice Provost for Research are developing incentives to encourage faculty to expand their sponsored research portfolios.

The purpose of this policy is to create a way for Arts & Sciences faculty to buy out of courses using external funding from sponsored research. Such a negotiated buy-outs allow departments to financially support their curriculum teaching needs during periods when faculty members may need to focus more on a sponsored research effort.
