Research Challenge Committee

The Office of Research and Graduate Studies announces the formation of a new committee called the Research Challenge Committee (RCC). In order to make significant progress toward the University’s goal of being a vibrant research University, we need to identify and alleviate (where possible) the challenges facing our faculty engaged in research. The charge of the committee will be to address problems faced by the faculty involved in funded research, the improvement of the research enterprise and environment at our University, and to advise the Vice President for Research and other administrative officers on matters of University policy and its implementation that can and should be changed to facilitate research.
