It is a pleasure to announce that the Office of the Provost will fund three continuing Faculty Research Seminars, profiled below, in spring 2016. The seminars, designed by participating faculty, are intended to bring together Baruch College faculty, graduate students, advanced undergraduates, faculty from neighboring institutions, and visiting scholars in interdisciplinary or disciplinary groups for the purpose of exploring topics of common intellectual and scholarly concern. All seminars are administered through the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research. Additional information, including the RFP for 2016-17 Faculty Research Seminars, is available from http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/grants/FacultyResearchSeminars.htm. The RFP for 2016-17 will also be emailed to faculty shortly. We invite interested faculty to confer with colleagues in view of submitting proposals. We also encourage you to contact core faculty below if you are interested in participating in a currently funded Faculty Research Seminar.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of proposing a Faculty Research Seminar for 2016-17, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dominic Esposito, Director, SPAR, (Dominic.email@example.com ).
