We are in final preparations for Workday and the Integrated Service Centre going live on November 2.

Professional Development Reimbursement Fund

Faculty Association members are eligible for reimbursement of funds related to their professional development.

Since July 1, 1999, Faculty Association members have been eligible for reimbursement of funds related to their professional development (PDR). Please refer to the PDR guidelines below for information on eligibility and process.

With the implementation of UBC's new administrative system, Workday, some of HR resources and processes will be changing. Professional Development claim requests are to be submitted and approved by October 8 through the current process. After October 8, please hold claim requests until November 15, at which time they can be submitted through Workday.

Please note: any claims for reimbursement must be made within 12 months of the date when the expense was incurred.

Two funding pools

Currently there are two separate professional development pools, as follows:

  1. Regular PD pool. This includes tenure stream and term bargaining unit appointments and Sessional Lecturers with Continuing Status. The accrual amount is $1,100 per year. Effective July 1, 2020, the amount of $1100 has been increased to $1700 per year.
  2. Sessional Lecturers without Continuing Status PD Pool. Accrual is based on a rate of $25 per credit course taught. Effective July 1, 2019, the rate of $25 has been increased to $100 per credit course taught. The total amount is up to $1700 per year.
