Guidelines for Submitting Requests for Ad Hoc Funding

Arts and Humanities Inclusive Excellence Initiative

As part of the Division of Arts and Humanities Strategic Plan for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion currently under development, in 2020-2021 the Dean’s Office will provide competitive ad-hoc funding to Senate Faculty, Unit-18 Lecturers and Staff for one-time projects focused on enhancing equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in their specific professional arenas. Please note specific support for students is in development and will be announced separately.

The funds allocated for this initiative consist of philanthropic contributions to the Dean’s Excellence Fund, a fund the Dean has the discretion to allocate to initiatives that enhance the excellence of the division. We continue to be grateful to our donors who keep Arts and Humanities at the top of their giving plans. This ad-hoc funding initiative would simply not be possible without this commitment and generosity.

Our mission is to create a community where all students, staff and faculty are supported, valued and treated with dignity, and we believe everyone should have tools at their disposal to help build and sustain an Arts and Humanities and UC San Diego we wish to inhabit.

While we plan to fund projects engaging a wide-range of EDI-related topics in 2020-2021, priority will be given to projects that address anti-Black racism, systemic racism and restorative racial justice.

Faculty Salary Exchange Program and Course Buy-out Program

Faculty Salary Exchange Program (FSEP)

Faculty may pay a portion of their academic year salary on extramural funds, and retain 100% of their released salary. The resulting salary savings are retained by the department and distributed according to departmental policy.

Compensation effort from extramural sources should not exceed 50% time in an academic year.

Funds allocated to the participant must be used by the faculty member for research and administrative expenditures allowable on state funds.

Participation in the program should in no way reduce the teaching and service commitment of the faculty member.

Requests must be received by the Dean's Office at least 30 days prior to the effective date of the FSEP. Effective date is always the first day of the month.

FSEP form  


Faculty Course Buy-out Program (CBO)

Faculty may use extramural dollars to buy out 2 courses per year, at the rate of 1/3 of the participant's annual salary, or 1/6 (16.67%) per course.

The department will receive 100% of the released salary, of which a portion must be used to replace the participant's uncovered courses.

Participants must teach two courses during the year, at least one of which must be an undergraduate course (size and content to be determined by departmental needs).

Participants in the program should in no way reduce the service commitment of the faculty member. The faculty member must remain on campus for the duration of the buy-out, with the exception of standard leaves of absence within policy.  This program may not be used in combination with a sabbatical leave.

All requests are EVC authority.
