Major Accomplishments

As of January 1, 2017, which is the time this Chair assumed responsibility of the committee, the Board is in a continual review of the research enterprise by evaluating the current research resources available, sustainability of these resources and interdisciplinary prospects for these resources across departments and colleges. The Board is also developing a directory of faculty panel reviewers that have served in such position for NSF, NIH, USDA, Foundation grants, and industry to strengthen the review process for limited submissions grant opportunities. Currently, the Board is reviewing the technological processes of the grant/faculty interface of services provided through ARGIS and GRID.
