A multifaith professional community supporting spiritual and ethical life in higher education

NACUC Regional Program Grants Fund

NACUC seeks to be a professional community supporting the work of higher education chaplains and deans and directors of religious life throughout the country and year-round. We recognize that for a variety of reasons, not all of our members are able to attend our annual conferences every year, and even those who are express that they desire the collegial support and professional development NACUC offers more frequently throughout the year and more accessibly to their contexts.

The NACUC Executive Committee has created the Regional Program Grants Fund to encourage members in each of our several regions and metropolitan hubs to gather more frequently, deepen collegial relationships and promote professional enrichment, welcome potential NACUC members, and build bridges with other related professional associations. We also hope that this fund will extend the leadership of NACUC activities beyond the Executive Committee circle.
Members may apply to the Regional Program Grants Fund Committee (chaired by a NACUC Exec At Large Member) for grants to support regional programs and gatherings. These might include a breakfast or lunch meeting for local colleagues, a webinar, live presentation, or discussion with a speaker relevant for colleagues, etc. Applications will be received and reviewed for allocations on a rolling basis. Successful applicants are required to submit an email report of the program grant fund use to the fund committee chair within a month following the program. When the report is received, NACUC will issue a check to reimburse the sponsoring institution for the amount allocated.

The Executive Committee has proposed an initial allocation of $3500 to support this fund. A report of the use of the fund will be presented annually at a NACUC business meeting by the fund committee chair.
