NASHVILLE, TN — Vanderbilt University urges faculty members to join the 2021–22 Southeastern Conference Faculty Travel Program. Vanderbilt will receive the applications through the InfoReady system, Vanderbilt’s submission portal, until Friday, July 23.

The Southeastern Conference or SEC Faculty Travel Program aims to improve faculty collaboration between SEC universities. The faculty members will have the chance to travel to other SEC universities to conduct research, develop grant proposals, deliver performances and develop grant proposals.

The faculty members will receive $500 to $1,500 grants for their travel expenses for the program. The SEC Faculty Travel Program will start on August 1, 2021 and the participants must complete the program by May 1, 2022.

The accepted faculty members will ensure their duties during their absence will be covered. Submitting a post-travel report to the Office of Faculty Affairs explaining the visit's outcome is also necessary. They need to contact the host institution to ensure their receptivity and availability.

Here are the members of SEC Universities:

Auburn University – Auburn, Alabama
Louisiana State University – Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Mississippi State University – Starkville, Mississippi
Texas A&M University – College Station, Texas
University of Alabama – Tuscaloosa, Alabama

In the 2019-20 Southeastern Conference Faculty Travel Program, fourteen faculty members joined the program. Last year, only nine universities participated in the program due to COVID-19.
