The GameAbove "Faculty First" initiative was created thanks to a $2 million pledge from GameAbove to support a broad range of faculty activities that will enhance and highlight the quality of EMU’s academic programs.
Faculty First funds have been used to support initiatives such as:
- Reassigned time from teaching for scholarly, creative, and innovative endeavors
- Conference presentations (including travel)
- Hiring of research assistants
- Purchasing special equipment for teaching or scholarly research
- Launching innovative programs to promote student persistence
- Developing a grant proposal for external funding
- Developing innovative academic programs
- Other similar initiatives
Future calls for funding will occur in Fall 2023 and can be found on this website.
