UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The Retraining & Renewal Grant Program is dedicated to the maintenance of academic excellence. In keeping with the conditions and intent of the legislation that supports this program, "the purpose of this comprehensive program is to increase the flexibility and effective use of existing faculty personnel in the University of Wisconsin System."
The overall philosophy behind the faculty retraining/renewal program is to minimize the fiscal implications to the participant, thereby encouraging rather than discouraging participation in the program.
