Research Council awards two dozen grants in aid of research

Each year the Office of the Provost provides funds for faculty research to help cover research expenses such as travel costs for faculty who are invited to present research papers at conferences, to participate in concerts or exhibitions, or to purchase materials and supplies for research projects. Those funds are supplemented by additional support from the deans of the College of Professional Studies and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The members of the UW-Green Bay Research Council met in April to select Grants in Aid of Research recipients. Twenty-five GIAR faculty grants were awarded for a total of $17,795, as follows:
