Pieter deHart has agreed to be the new associate vice chancellor for Graduate Studies. His first day will be Jan. 6, 2020. deHart has a Ph.D. in Marine Biology from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, and he is currently the dean of the School of Environmental Citizenship and professor of biology at Unity College in Maine. He has impressive research credentials and will work with Roger Wareham and the Office of Grants and Research to continue to grow UW-Green Bay’s portfolio in this area.
For the second consecutive year, UW-Green Bay hosted the 18th annual UW System Symposium for Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activity (URSCA) on Friday, April 26, 2019. This event, which rotates between the UW System campuses, had more than 400 students in attendance from across the UW System. The attendance of UW-Green Bay community members, family members of the researchers, faculty from other UW campuses and UW System officials added to the exciting atmosphere of the event. There was 263 presentations of research including poster presentations, gallery exhibits, visuals, and artistic and oral performances in all disciplines from natural science, biology, and technology, to social science and history.
Organizers wish to thank all the volunteers who contributed to the well-run event including the UW-Green Bay Ambassadors, faculty and staff. Much appreciation to the Kress Events Center and University Union staff. A very special thank you to Teri Ternes, Claire Carviou and Emily Wolf for assisting in the organization of this event. The next UW Undergraduate Research Symposiums will be hosted by UW-Whitewater in 2020 and 2021.

A reminder The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) has three Spring 2019 calls you may be interested in applying for:
Preparing your course syllabi? Are you familiar with the free CITI online trainings available to you and your students? If not, visit https://about.citiprogram.org/en/homepage/ to learn more. You may be interested in two new course offerings and perhaps consider using them in your classes. “Communicating Research Findings” is a two-module course focusing on effective practices, guidelines, and strategies for communicating and presenting research findings, and covers important areas such as approaches for making research findings more understandable to different audiences. And, “Plagiarism Refresher” is a module that refreshes learners on the definition of plagiarism, appropriate summarization of material, and strategies for properly citing information sources. UW-Green Bay’s Office of Grants and Research pays for the CITI subscription so you don’t have to!
The UW-Green Bay Research Council is currently accepting proposals for Winter 2019 Grants in Aid of Research. Faculty having applied for GIAR funding in the past will want to note that revisions have been made to the GIAR call. The Research Council invites members of the UW-Green Bay faculty to submit proposals for Grants in Aid of Research. The funds must be used in support of faculty research. All GIAR proposals are due by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019. Learn more. Please contact Research Council Chairperson Brian Welsch at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
The UW-Green Bay Research Council is currently accepting proposals for Summer 2019 Research Scholars.

The intent to submit deadline is Monday, Nov. 26, 2018 for the UW System Applied Research Grant programs (ARG and AR-WiTAG). This is open to all faculty and academic staff within the UW System undertaking research with potential for significant economic impact to the state. Full applications are due on Monday, Jan. 28, 2019. Learn more and submit your intent.
Applications for the WiSys Spark Grant are due on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2018. This grant is open to faculty, academic staff and students at participating UW-Comprehensive Campuses undertaking early-stage research projects with commercial potential that are in need of additional development support to take the technology closer to the market place. Learn more.
Funding available through the Regent Scholar Grant program has been reinstated for 2018-19 and will provide one-time grants to individual faculty or to campus programs that undertake undergraduate research projects having potential to foster innovation, entrepreneurship and talent development. Programs may have an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as well as pursuits in academic disciplines, including arts, humanities or professional studies. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018. Learn more and submit an application.

The Sustainability Challenge: Designing Projects for Success Beyond the Grant Period
Increasingly, in their RFPs, sponsors are requesting information about “sustainability.” They want to know what will happen to a project after the grant ends: will it grow, be maintained at current levels, continue on a reduced scale, or cease entirely? In this session you will learn about five different types of sustainability and two core questions that must be answered when designing a sustainability plan. A discussion of logic models will highlight sustainability considerations from the point of view of grant reviewers and, in turn, better prepare you to answer the oft-dreaded question, “How will your project be sustained beyond the grant period?”
