Faculty RSCA Assigned Time Program

The RSCA Reassigned Time Program is designed to support Research, Scholarship, or Creative Activities (RSCA) productivity. The program supports tenure-track (probationary) and tenured faculty in the form of up to three weighted units of assigned time per semester.

You can find details about the RSCA Assigned Time on the Office of Research and Innovation website here.

Application materials will be submitted to Laurie Drabble, Associate Dean for Research and Faculty by email: laurie.drabble@sjsu.edu. Please also copy Joanne Delamar, Executive Assistant to the Dean: joanne.delamar@sjsu.edu. Please feel free to contact Laurie Drabble (at the email above) if you have any questions.

Applications will be due by March 26, 2021 by 5pm.

Applications will be reviewed by the Dean and both Associate Deans. The final decision of which eligible faculty will receive assigned time through the Faculty RSCA Assigned Time program will be made by the Vice President of Research and Innovation (VPRI) in consultation with the Provost, weighing the Dean’s recommendations.  The VPRI and Provost may, at their discretion, review the Dean’s recommendations and process to assure that the selected faculty members’ RSCA productivity meet university-wide standards.
