This interactive workshop, facilitated by Don Campbell (Office of Contracts and Grants) and Crystal Herron (experienced grant editor), is designed to help you understand how to write small grants.

Please plan to bring a laptop, an open mind, and some ideas about a project you would like to get funded. During the workshop, you will be able to set up a SPIN account to receive alerts about funding opportunities and apply what you learn during the presentation to developing a plan and outline for your next proposal.

Academic Freedom in Dangerous Times: A Panel Discussion

Wednesday, October 10, 3:30–5 p.m.
Zief Law Library – 201 Terrace Room

University faculty face a national climate of rising intolerance and a widening partisan gap in perception of the value and impact of higher education. We have witnessed a steady decline in higher ed’s commitment to the protections of tenure, even as Information technology and social media play a new and unpredictable role in public perception of faculty work.

In these politically volatile times, how can faculty work together to preserve and sustain the values of academic freedom?

Panelists included Aysha Hidayatullah (Theology and Religious Studies), Brandi Lawless (Communications), and Stephen Zunes (Politics), and the event will be moderated by Michael Rozendal (Rhetoric and Language). This event was co-sponsored by the Tracy Seeley Center for Teaching Excellence and the Center for Research, Artistic and Scholarly Excellence.
