UWL’s Extraordinary D&I Service: Faculty Research Award

UWL’s Extraordinary D&I Service: Faculty Research Award is designed to acknowledge the additional service obligations associated with faculty who actively advance UWL’s goals in the area of equity and diversity by providing support for the production of scholarly work among tenure-track faculty members. The term “research” is meant to denote investigative activities – scholarly efforts to advance knowledge, increase skills, and improve understanding, in any academic discipline.

The Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs provides funding to support the UWL’s Extraordinary D&I Service: Faculty Research Award.
