Liberal Arts Faculty Named to 2016 Research and Engagement Academy
Four Liberal Arts faculty members have been named 2016 Research and Engagement Academy Scholars by the UNH Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Engagement and Academic Outreach: Elizabeth Carter, assistant professor of political science; Nora Draper, assistant professor of communication; Diane Silva-Pimentel, assistant professor of education; and Harriet Fertik, assistant professor of classics. The scholars will be inducted at a ceremony and luncheon on January 29, 2016.
The Research and Engagement Academy is designed to advance and support the scholarly careers and success of faculty members by strengthening the quality and quantity of grant proposals submitted to federal agencies and foundations and by increasing the diversity of faculty who are awarded funding. Academy scholars commit to submit a competitive grant proposal, to attend seven half-day workshops and to work closely with an assigned “scholarly coach.” Scholarly coaches are senior UNH faculty with established track records of external funding.
