The Office of the Provost is soliciting cross/multi/interdisciplinary research and creative activity proposals tied to the thematic areas of focus in the UNCG strategic plan:
- health and wellbeing,
- vibrant communities, and
- global connections.
Faculty are being asked to review these themes in the University Plan and consider responding to one of the three RFPs available to provide seed funding for teaching innovations or research tied to the Strategic Plan.
These grants are designed to help faculty engage in multidisciplinary endeavors in order to advance understanding of key factors related to these themes and/or solutions to some of the major challenges. The attached RFPs contain more information on the application process and the mechanism and criteria for review. Please note any requirements in the RFPs regarding collaboration across disciplines. Questions should be directed to the individuals indicated in each RFP.
All proposals are due by December 9, 2016; decisions will be announced by February 3, 2017.
