The purpose of Scholarship Reassigned Time is to encourage and support scholarly/creative activities, which will enhance the faculty member’s professional development, reflect positively on the Department, School, College and University, and further one’s discipline. Scholarly/creative activities are to be interpreted broadly. Thus, scholarship may include research (for example, data collection and/or analysis), writing for publication, or writing grant proposals.

In some cases, scholarly/creative activities also apply to the development of curricula and new academic programs or other initiatives,
