WSU System Research Support Town Hall

April 25th, 2019, 3:30-5:00 PM


Faculty Senate is working with the Vice President for Finance and Administration and the Vice President for Research to identify barriers to research support within the WSU system. Senate has collected specific concerns and created a document outlining these pre-award and post-award issues. Both research faculty and grant support staff contributed to this document. Both vice presidents are collaborating to produce an initial response document, which is not yet complete. This ongoing process will be discussed briefly during the April 11th senate meeting. Senate has scheduled a follow-up Town Hall on April 25th from 3:30 to 5:00 pm. To maximize system participation, this Town Hall will be available at all campuses via AMS and livestreamed

We understand that issues surrounding research support and infrastructure within the WSU system are complex.  At the April 25 Town Hall, we hope to facilitate a constructive dialog around policy suggestions aimed at improving our Drive to 25 goals.  All faculty and staff are invited to participate in this Town Hall.  Before the close of the Town Hall, we will decide appropriate next steps.
