Grants and Research Advisory Board (GRAB)

GRAB Accepted Recommendations

  1. Each Dean will work with the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs to develop a plan for their school and college, with goals for increasing grant and contract activity and indirect cost recovery.
  2. Each Dean will develop a college/school policy on the internal distribution of indirect cost recovery that is dedicated to expanding future grant and contract activity.
  3. The Associate VP for Research will work with Deans to develop the aforementioned plans and to augment initial job offers with funding to assist in establishing new faculty research agendas.
  4. The members of GRAB will produce a new Principal Investigators' Handbook and distribute it widely.
  5. The members of GRAB will offer School/College meetings on grant and contract activity again in 2006-2007.

  7. TILT/CSALT will host three to four Brown Bag Discussions on "How I Got the Grant" to be offered by successful PIs.
  8. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs will add another grants administrator to address volume of applications and to allow the Associate Vice President time to pursue new grant and research activity.
