Seeking Outside Funding

Faculty and Academic Departments seeking funding from foundations, corporations, or individual donors work with the Provost's Office to identify priorities and shape their plans. After those initial discussions, faculty partner with the Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations, and other members of the Office of College Advancement.

To begin the partnering process, we invite you to articulate your vision on the Academic Grant Worksheet and submit it to Patti Hunter in the Provost's Office.

Current Projects

The Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations and OCA officers consult this list for information about faculty priorities and interests.

Pursuit of funding from individual donors or foundations is coordinated by OCA and the Provost's Office and should not be made by individual faculty or departments without consultation with the Provost's Office.

Departments and faculty who wish to provide updates on activities related to these projects should send them to Patti Hunter in the Provost's Office.
