After speaking with a variety of undergraduate and graduate program directors, it was clear that no specific incentives met the definition of AASHE's: "release time, funding for professional development, or trainings." However, conversations about course development incentives sparked an interest among several faculty members to have professional training and development opportunities in the future.
