**NEW** Faculty Associate for Grants Development

The role of the Faculty Associate for Grants Development is to work with the GDO to promote grant-seeking and facilitate the development of high quality, competitive external grant proposals by faculty and professional staff. A related goal is to increase applications for campus-based grant funds, particularly for projects that may lead to applications for external support. This is a pilot program supported by a Strategic Allocation of Resources (StAR) award. Those interested in the 2016/17 position must contact Kathy Meeker by September 1, 2016.


The Grants Development Office (GDO), a unit of the Office of Academic Programs (Division of Academic Affairs), makes a significant impact on the College, both financially and culturally, by working with facuty and staff to obtain external funds for research and other scholarly efforts, programs, instruction, and other institutional priorities and initiatives. The GDO also supports and promotes the connection of research (particularly that which engages students) and professional development to scholarship and academic excellence. The GDO assists faculty and staff with conceptualizing, planning, drafting and submitting proposals; contact us during the early stages of developing your proposal. This allows us to serve you best, by providing everything from proposal drafting, editing and formatting, to submission of proposals.

The GDO/Sponsored Programs (SP) Advisory Council facilitates ongoing exchange between these administrative units and faculty, to strengthen existing and future partnerships, and enhance "seamless" pre- (GDO) and post- (SP) award services.

The Grants Development Office (GDO) is a unit of the Office of Academic Programs, under the direction of the Associate Provost of Academic Programs, Dr. Eileen Morgan-Zayachek Overview of the Office of Academic Programs.ppt
