System closes to submissions: 4 PM, December 3, 2013.
Faculty Development Leaves (FDLs) are awarded to support a variety of activities including support for publication, research, teaching, and creative activities. The overriding principle upon which proposals will be evaluated is the potential for achievement of a degree of excellence surpassing the normal responsibilities of a faculty member.
FDLs may be awarded only to faculty members who 1) have served full-time as assistant, associate, or full professors on the UT Arlington faculty for at least two consecutive academic years, and 2) have earned tenure by the time the leave commences. The period of leave shall be either one year at one-half regular salary or for one semester at full salary. For additional information, please see the most current FDL program guidelines.
All applications for a Faculty Development Leave must be submitted online via the Online Proposal Submission System.
To assure that FDL proposals will be reviewed in a timely manner, all deadlines for the current cycle must be honored. For a detailed timetable, please refer to the current Program Guidelines. For more information, see the Faculty Development Leave Policy in the UT Arlington Handbook of Operating Procedures, ADM 6-507.

A recent study by UT Arlington scientists of 100 private water wells in and near the Barnett Shale showed elevated levels of potential contaminants in those closest to natural gas extraction sites. The team conducted much of the water sample testing in the University’s Shimadzu Center for Advanced Analytical Chemistry.
