the preparation and submission of a proposal for submission, the Saint
Paul’s College Transmittal form for Proposal review and Approval must be
completed and submitted to the Office of Sponsored and Federal Programs.
This form will provide members of the Executive Council information on
the specific name of research, instructional activities,
activities proposed, and College commitments. The form may be
obtained from the Office of Sponsored and Federal Programs or
funds to pay salaries
Saint Paul’s College are accepted if consistent with the College’s
educational objectives. Therefore, it is not the College’s policy to
accept grant funding that would require faculty effort to exceed a
regular full-time load. For this cause, the College will not normally
accept grant funding that would increase an employee’s total
compensation for the academic year beyond the agreed upon full time
salary. (See Indirect Cost compensation that follows.)
regular responsibilities of Saint Paul’s College faculty include
scholarship as well as teaching and course development. To accommodate
these responsibilities, Saint Paul’s College faculty who teach three
courses in a given semester are also deemed to receive three hours (or
the equivalent of one course) released time in that semester, to
accomplish his/her scholarly work. For this reason, with the agreement
of the Department Chairperson and Provost /Vice President of Academic
Affairs, a faculty member may devote up to 25% of his or her time to
sponsored research or other sponsored projects during a given semester,
and document this potion of time as a College-funded contribution to the
project. This amount of time represents the College’s regular
expectation of scholarly work on the part of the faculty, and will not
result in additional reduction of the number of courses taught.
Funds for Released time
primary mission of Saint Paul’s College is teaching. Grant funds are
accepted to provide released time that would reduce a faculty member’s
teaching load only in very unusual circumstances. These circumstances
must directly serve the College’s educational mission. All related
arrangements must be approved by the appropriate Department Chairperson
and Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs, before a grant proposal
is submitted. In all cases, a reduction in teaching load will only be
approved on a short-term basis.
for Summer Salary
normal practice of Saint Paul’s College is that faculty summer salaries
be limited to two-ninths of academic year salary. This information is
established by the National Science Foundation and other major federal
agencies. Total compensation to a faculty member for summer work will
not exceed three-ninths of the faculty member’s academic year salary.
It is the
policy of Saint Paul’s College that where salaries are paid with
external funding, corresponding fringe benefits should be paid by the
same funding source. Exceptions to this policy must be made with prior
approval of the Vice President for Financial Affairs.
or overhead costs are awarded to compensate the College for general but
real operating expenditures, such as heat, electricity, and accounting
services. As an incentive for proposal writing, for each funded proposal
with indirect cost, the College will compensate the faculty member 3.5%
of the proposal Indirect Cost.
Periodically the College negotiates a federal indirect cost
reimbursement rate with the U. S. Department of Health and Human
Services. Faculty who are preparing proposals should contact the Office
of Foundation, Corporate and Government Relations to verify this rate.
