The governor did not include the BCP in the January 2006 budget; the May Revise (2006) also did not include Faculty Development funding. Final budget June 06 did include funding on a one time basis. This is an ongoing task for permanent line in budget. BOG did ask for unused growth funds to possibly be used for faculty development.
