Opportunities for ACM Faculty

ACM provides a variety of opportunities for faculty at ACM colleges to extend their expertise and gain new perspectives.

Grant-funded programs

Supported by generous grants from the Mellon Foundation, the Teagle Foundation, and others, ACM sponsors a range of faculty development initiatives, such as the Faculty Career Enhancement (FaCE) Program and the Seminars in Advanced Interdisciplinary Learning (SAIL). See the Our Collaborations webpage for links to these programs.

Positions on ACM off-campus study programs

Faculty at ACM colleges can apply for appointments as Program Directors and Visiting Faculty on ACM programs in Africa, Asia, Europe and the U.S.

Faculty Site Visits Program

Each semester, ACM faculty may apply to participate in a faculty site visit to a consortial off-campus program site to learn about the program, meet on-site faculty and staff, and make professional contacts. See the Faculty Site Visits webpage for information about applying to participate in a faculty site visit.

Conferences and workshops

ACM sponsors a variety of conference and workshops for faculty and staff each year. Many are in connection with grant-funded programs (see above), while others are funded by ACM. In addition, events sponsored by individual colleges are sometimes open to faculty from throughout the ACM. See the ACM calendar for upcoming events.

Faculty travel grants

Grants are available for travel to Japan, the Newberry Library (Chicago), and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (TN). 

Opportunities sponsored by ACM colleges

As available, information will be posted about opportunities sponsored by individual colleges and open to participants from ACM colleges.
