The Bedichek-Orman Auction

The Bedichek-Orman Work Group works throughout the year to raise funds for professional development opportunities and for the aid of faculty in distress. However, their primary fundraising event is the Bedichek-Orman Professional Development Auction, held annually in October.

The money raised by the work group funds Bedichek-Orman Professional Development Awards, which are designated to assist full-time and adjunct faculty in travel and/or registration for professional development purposes.  In 2016, the Senate also decided to use these funds in the creation of a system whereby faculty members in dire straits may seek assistance (details forthcoming).
