Montana University System Faculty Vitality Project.
The Montana University system's faculty vitality project is described. One component of the project is faculty exchanges among the six units of the Montana system. Hampered in program development by small staffs and inadequate resources, and cut off from professional contacts by limited travel budgets, the faculty of three small colleges in particular have felt left out of the mainstream of academic life. Faculty exchange provides exposure to new concepts and professional challenges. Faculty reallocation and development is a second project focus, since faculty members may be reallocated from over-staffed departments/programs to those that are under-staffed. In some cases, the faculty will require some additional training. Additionally, released time for faculty has been provided for course and program development. Finally, one of the best faculty vitality projects has been its evaluation system. Faculty members from each of the six units have been chosen to serve on the evaluation team, which evaluates proposals and projects at different campuses. (SW)
