Measures of Success:  PROPEL seeks to contribute creating a positive culture of engagement and innovation by enhancing award programs that acknowledge performance and excellence in research.  Additional measures focus on recruitment and retention of faculty and students by fostering research opportunities and promoting opportunities to enhance diversity in research practice

VPR RFP Announcment

Over the past year the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) has engaged in dialogues across campus to allow for new funding opportunities. The OVPR is pleased to announce three new initiatives that will expand our research portfolio and facilitate innovation with new partners.

The Catalyst for Innovative Partnership Request for Proposal was created to stimulate new “Multi-X” teams and catalyze large opportunities in external funding from government, industry or foundation sponsorship of faculty research.  Successful application will be provided funding and other infrastructure support to help teams compete for external funding over a 1-2 year period.

The One Health initiative culminated from faculty, staff and administrators collaboration on an important, emerging discipline.  The program is supported by all 8 colleges and will be run out of the OVPR.  The intent of this program is to fund new ideas in One Health and to leverage external funding opportunities that align with the strategic priorities generated at the recent widely attended One Health retreat.  The program also provides the opportunity to compete for funding that will promote idea flows in One Health.

The Interdisciplinary Scholarship Award was created to increase our recognition of excellence in our people passionate about their research. Four awards will be given that recognize either a faculty member or research team whose interdisciplinary scholarship has had a major impact nationally and/or internationally.
