The university announced the Vanderbilt Strong Faculty Grant Program earlier this week. The program was established to counterbalance direct impacts to faculty efforts during the ongoing pandemic so that all can continue pursuing academic excellence.

The funding, for example, aims to facilitate more in-person experiences for students by providing resources to further support in-person teaching where there is a mix of in-person and remote enrollees. In addition, the program seeks to support alternative approaches needed to foster research, scholarship and creative expression.
