Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology accepting proposals for faculty funding to supplement or extend research leave

The Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) is accepting proposals for funding to supplement or extend planned research leave for faculty. ICAT will provide semester matching funds to home departments that can be used to extend research leave by a semester for faculty pursuing a range of transdisciplinary activities including creative projects, pilot studies, feasibility studies, or preliminary research.

It is expected that the research leave funded by ICAT will help advance ICAT’s mission of addressing complex challenges through networks of people and advanced technology.

Tenured faculty members, or faculty members on continued appointment, with the rank of assistant professor or higher, holding full-time faculty appointments and having accrued a minimum of six years of service, are eligible to request research leave from their home departments in accordance with university faculty policies.

Submission deadline is Dec. 6, 2019, at 5 p.m.
