CEP Faculty Spotlight Series in Research and External Grants


Faculty Spotlight Series in Research and External Grants

One area of improvement identified in our climate survey report involves recognitions and rewards for faculty accomplishments. In AY22-23, the College of Education and P-16 Integration will start the CEP Faculty Spotlight Series in Research and External Grants to recognize CEP faculty members’ accomplishments and successes. Aligned with our climate survey report, CEP strategic plan, and UTRGV’s goal to become a R1 university, this spotlight series will showcase faculty members’ accomplishments in external grants and research.

The key goals of this series are to:

  • Celebrate and recognize CEP faculty members’ significant accomplishments in research and external grants
  • Cultivate a research enterprise by fostering research and external grants conversations among faculty members
  • Stimulate interest in external grant writing

The Research Council, which is a sub-committee of the College Council, will select a CEP faculty member for each month. The selected CEP faculty member will lead a workshop on a topic of their choice. To be considered for the Fall 2022 Spotlight, nominations or self-nominations must be submitted through the following form by Friday, September 16th at 5 pm. Nominations or self-nominations for spring 2023 will be accepted later. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Javier Cavazos (Javier.cavazos@utrgv.edu).
