Faculty Enrollment and FLinT Process Management
Faculty Leadership in Teaching (FLinT) is a Roosevelt University 15 hour graduate credential program designed for CCC faculty interested in learning more about community college teaching, student learning, and leadership in higher education. CCC faculty who began before Fall, 2013 may use courses from the FLinT program for tenure and faculty who begin teaching in Fall, 2013 can apply FLinT courses toward an Individualized Learning and Service Plan (ILSP). With approval, any faculty may use FLinT courses toward lane advancement. 1 Faculty may choose from a list of seven (7) courses. Completion of three courses* will also qualify a faculty member for a Graduate Credential in Online Teaching.

FLinT tuition for CCC faculty is 20% of Roosevelt University’s graduate tuition per 3 hour graduate course. City Colleges of Chicago subsidizes 40% of the tuition and Roosevelt University discounts tuition by 40%.
CCC enrollment is managed manually to assure CCC students are not intermingled with other students who pay full tuition and to assure the FLinT budget for the academic year is not exceeded.
Faculty may request a maximum of two courses in any one semester. 2 The discount is as follows:

Contact Roosevelt’s University Training and Development Program to request an enrollment form, specifically for FLinT. Tara Hawkins firstname.lastname@example.org
Obtain the signature approval of their College V.P.
The College V.P. reviews the request, based upon, e.g. whether the course is required for tenure or professional development, the faculty member’s professional development plan, the FLinT budget for that term, and the number of faculty who request a FLinT course.
If the request is approved, the College V.P. should indicate on the form, by checking ‘yes’ or ‘no’, whether the course is being requested for tenure.
The faculty member emails the completed, approved form to Roosevelt with the VP’s printed name and signature and the name of the faculty member’s college.
Receive the budgeted amount for the term from Academic Affairs, District Office.
Inform Office of Strategy and Academic Governance of new enrollment requests.
Review all enrollment information, check for legible V.P. name/signature, college name, and a maximum of two courses.
Forward approved form to the Office of Strategy and Academic Governance for the Senior Vice Chancellor's signature.
Regularly, CCC/Office of Strategy and Academic Governance will review the list of current enrolled students to monitor the Flint tuition budget.
Office of Strategy and Academic Governance, District Office will receive an invoice from Roosevelt each term and will initiate the requisition to request payment for the CCC portion.
If for any term, individual college budgets are approved for FLinT, requisitions will be initiated by each college for their own faculty with oversight from Office of Strategy and Academic Governance, District Office.
CCC faculty will be responsible for their 20% share and will pay Roosevelt directly at the time of enrollment.3
It is vitally important that Office of Strategy and Academic Governance assures that invoices are paid in a timely manner whether by District Office or by the colleges, individually.
