The Office of the Provost will host an open house Tuesday, Sept. 19, to showcase Vanderbilt’s internal funding programs and professional development initiatives available to faculty. The Faculty Funding and Resource Fair will be held at the Student Life Center Ballroom from 2 to 5:30 p.m., and all interested faculty are invited to attend.
More than 15 internal funding programs and dozens of professional development opportunities are sponsored by the university to help faculty advance their careers, including Trans-Institutional Programs, Research Scholar Grants and Vanderbilt Institute for Digital Learning grants.
“Supporting our faculty and helping them advance along their career path is of the utmost importance,” said Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Susan R. Wente. “As a university, it’s imperative that we provide our faculty the opportunity to learn about exciting internal funding programs and professional development resources. At the Funding and Resource Fair, program administrators, committee members and participating faculty members will be on hand to answer questions and discuss possibilities.”
While faculty are encouraged to drop by at any time during the fair, five special topic breakout discussions will be held. Topics include internal funding for faculty research and scholarship; strategic external proposal and intellectual property development; innovating in the classroom; professional development opportunities; and supporting an inclusive faculty community. The fair schedule is below:
