Purposes of the PDI

The purposes of the PDI are to support and enable faculty members' efforts to improve their teaching and their students' learning. These are, admittedly, broadly defined purposes for which any number of possible purchases may be appropriate. Thus, it rests upon the faculty member to use the funds in ways that fulfill these purposes. To further assist faculty in determining how best to use their PDIs, we provide here annotated links to relevant and important University policies, procedures, and recommendations.
