The Building Faculty Connections Program is designed to foster intellectual communities and activities that bring faculty together across colleges and/or departments. Funds are intended to promote dialogue and collaboration involving faculty, and are not to be used to fund faculty time or to pay for individual research projects. The purpose of the funding is to bring people together who otherwise would not have had an opportunity to do so. Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis. Human Ecology tenured or tenure-track faculty are eligible to apply. Groups of faculty are encouraged to apply together when relevant. One-page proposals should include the following:
Purpose of activity
Which departments/colleges would be involved (as well as how many faculty might be involved) ″Description of planned activities ″Budget (not to exceed $3000 per year for no more than two years)
Please submit your proposals to the Associate Dean for Research and Outreach (email@example.com).
The Program for Review of Faculty Grant Proposals gives tenured and tenure-track faculty the opportunity to obtain valuable outside input on their grant proposals. The College of Human Ecology will pay an honorarium of $1,000 to an outside expert in the field who is willing to read and provide comment on faculty proposals. Priority will be given to junior faculty and new investigators; however all faculty are welcome to apply.
