The committee discussed the use of an online grant submission form that is being piloted through the Provost’s office.  General consensus was that the committee members would prefer NOT to implement the online submission form, since members would like to have hard copies of proposals during meetings.  As in the past, candidates submitting proposals should submit a copy for each member of the review committee.

 

The committee has been given a special charge from Faculty Senate:  “Develop a method to gather a final report from grant winners, and create a survey to be given to existing grant-winners in order to track publications and other research products.”  The committee decided to table discussion of this topic until the next meeting, October 2, 2006.

 

Meeting adjourned, 2:47 PM. 

 

Next meeting date: Monday, October 2, 2006, 7:30 PM, room 116 Cowley Hall.
