Am I eligible for release time?
Since 1996 Dawson College has served the equivalent of 3 full-time teaching (3FTE’s) to support researchers. Although priority is given to credited researchers who are funded through recognized research agencies (FQRSC, FRNT, NSRC, PAREA, PART, PSCC, Health Canada), the College tries to support other research efforts when there are sufficient funds to do so.
Faculty researchers who wish to apply for research release must prepare a letter of request. Letters of request, along with a copy of the research proposal, should be addressed to Barbara Freedman on behalf of the Dean’s Group.
Letters of request must outline
- The nature of the research project
- The intended outcomes of the research project
- A summary of the tasks and hours required to completed the work.
The Dean’s Group will consider requests for release once the various funding competition results are announced.
