Eastern Michigan University is known for its high standard of excellence; the faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences is no exception. Faculty members of the College have a strong international presence. Many have had their talents and works published, performed or on display across the globe. Many have taught globally as well, whether at other universities or in conjunction with some of EMU's many academic study abroad courses.
We are pleased to offer two faculty awards to encourage College priorities in the areas of interdisciplinary research and creative activity support and program support. Both award applications are due November 5, 2014.
The Dean's Interdisciplinary Research and Creative Activity Award provides funding to support collaborative planning and implementation of interdisciplinary research and creative activity. Funding will support proposals that show evidence of succeeding in grant support for interdisciplinary research/creative activity, or research/creative activity involving community engagement (local, regional, national or international), or research/creative partnerships with external institutions (local, regional, national or international), or advancement (fundraising) for existing research/creative projects or existing interdisciplinary programs. Funding does not support single course development. Download IRC application here.
The Dean's Program Development Initiative provides funding to support special projects that will create, enhance, or sustain curricular or co-curricular offerings in the College of Arts and Sciences. Funding will support activities such as program development, development and implementation of program assessment plans or projects that improve the sustainability of existing programs. This process does not support single course development. Download PDI application here.
