The Faculty Development Fund for part-time faculty is facilitated by Otis College’s Labor Management Committee, as outlined in the Collective Bargaining Agreement between Otis College of Art and Design and the Service Employees International Union Local 721 on October 1, 2016 (see page 16 of the agreement).
Part-time employees who have taught at least one course each semester for three consecutive semesters will be able to receive reimbursement for approved expenses associates with professional development activities directly related to teaching courses assigned to the bargaining unit employee, such as exhibitions, conferences, and seminars. For more information, including how to receive funds, please contact Joshua Callaghan of the Labor Management Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
To receive a copy of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, or to speak with an SEIU union representative, call 202-730-7000 or go to www.seiu.org/about/#contact
