GRO Academy Self-Nomination Deadline Extended to March 22

The Office of Research invites self-nominations from all colleges to a new leadership development program: the Growing Research Opportunities (GRO) Academy. This program will equip faculty with skills needed to lead complex, interdisciplinary collaborations in pursuit of external funding. The GRO Academy is part of a developing set of multi-faceted programs designed to foster intellectually diverse, collaborative research across academic domains, catalyze new scholarly pursuits, and help generate compelling future funding proposals. The GRO Academy includes eight, 90-minute sessions and is primarily aimed at mid-career faculty, although tenured/tenure track faculty of any rank may self-nominate. Those selected must be able to devote approximately 30 hours to program participation from May 17-June 18. Those completing the program will be designated as ‘GRO Leadership Fellows.’ Learn more online or via the March 18 all-Extension message via Lori Kaser.
