Graduate Education and Research


In this session, participants will discuss successful (and maybe not so successful) faculty development programs and activities. We will provide participants with some examples of building relationships with faculty early on, and how to demonstrate to faculty that the grants/sponsored programs offices are on “their” side. We will also discuss and share ideas of celebrating faculty scholarship, proposal submission and external awards.

Learning Objectives:

- Explore ways to connect with faculty early-on at your institution (during the interview process, at the start of the academic year, etc.)

- Learn some of the different ways institutions celebrate faculty scholarship, proposal submission, and external awards.

- Discuss different training methods to help make the proposal development and submission process go more smoothly.

- Discuss various incentives that different institutions use for faculty to submit proposals.
