The Committee’s primary charge is to
evaluate submitted summer scholarship grant proposals and to recommend to the
provost a portion of these proposals for funding. One committee member was on sabbatical during
the spring term, but a replacement was appointed. This was the second year that
interdisciplinary applications were accepted.
The committee received individual and collaborative applications from 79
faculty, totaling 124 proposals. The
committee recommended six interdisciplinary proposals. Recommendations by college were: 19 out of 40 recommended for COAS; 2 of the 4
were recommended from BCH; 1 of the 2 from CCEC were recommended; 0 of 1 were
recommended for CCB; and 1 of 2 were recommended for COEHS. During the course of the year it was
determined that the Research Committee should become a larger Research Council
which will commence in the fall of 2015, though an initial meeting was held and
a chair was elected in late April.
