Faculty Research Reassignment

research innovation

Because ongoing and productive research is integral to the mission of VCU, highly active researchers may seek Dean’s Office support for research reassignment. From course reductions to leave, research reassignments are based on several factors and are evaluated by the Dean’s Office.

Reassignments can accommodate external fellowship awards and residencies that occur during the school year. Plan ahead for a research reassignment by applying for external residencies or fellowships that may also contribute to funding your reassignment expenses. 

All requests for Spring 2021 have been submitted. Faculty and Chairs will be notified by September 15th.

Notifications for Fall 2021 requests will be emailed to faculty and published on this page. Please check back for updates.
