Faculty Renewal Plan

Funding for the eight teaching Faculties continues to be allocated using the revenue-based Faculty Allocation Model (FAM). The model distributes a portion of the revenue received by the University (tuition, grant, and indirect costs of research) to the Faculties based primarily on achievement of the University Enrolment Plan.

The goals contained in the Five Year Academic Plan 2019-2024 make the continued recruitment of faculty an imperative for SFU. It is important that an appropriate balance of teaching and research faculty members is maintained and that the approved positions contribute to the research strengths of the academic units. The annual faculty renewal planning process provides a strategic opportunity to direct resources to specific research areas.
