Department Grants Liaisons

Grants liaisons from each department work with the Grants Office to inform faculty of the services available. These services include assistance in applying for individual or departmental grants, including research on funding sources, and working with project directors on narratives and budgets.

Liaisons receive notices throughout the year about funding opportunities, residencies, etc. that are appropriate for faculty members in their departments.

Liaison responsibilities:

  • distribute grants-related information to faculty members;
  • at department meetings, discuss how the Grants Office can help individual faculty apply for grants, as well as work with the department as a whole;
  • meet with chairpersons to discuss possible department projects and let them know what services and resources are available from the Grants Office;
  • meet with individual faculty members to discuss their interests (e.g., research, creative work, travel) and to answer their questions;
  • refer chairpersons and faculty to Grants Office staff for further information; and
  • promote the Grants Office website.
