Website active for 2015-16 funding requests to support Road Map projects| February 17, 2014
The total amount of available funding is not yet known, but the call for proposals is an opportunity for deans, departments, Road Map Steering Committee teams and individuals to suggest investments that will help the campus achieve the ambitious objectives outlined in the Road Map.
Proposals will be accepted until Monday, April 7, 2014, for projects that require one-time or continuing support, including non-faculty personnel, graduate students, equipment and OTPS (other than personal services).
