Research Committee

The Research Committee is concerned with the character of research operations at the University. The committee serves as the major committee responsible for the review of center/institute proposals. The committee is also concerned with a variety of issues and problems that affect the faculty's ability to support and carry out their research programs.

A major task of the committee each year is the establishment of subcommittees to review the many proposals which are submitted each year to the Vice-President for Research for research assistance. Included are monthly small grant proposals for which the Research Committee provides the input.

In addition, the committee suggests nominees to review the annual proposals for summer research assistance and the Graduate Research Assistant and Research Equipment competition.
