2019-20 Transforming Our World Call for Proposals

The impacts of the UTRGV Transforming Our World Strategic Plan can be seen in various ways across the university. Our first Comprehensive Report will be out soon, and we’re finishing up the development of our action plans that show how we are moving forward with meeting our objectives, fulfilling our goals, and advancing our mission.

To help further the strategic plan’s goals, Academic Affairs is issuing a Call for Proposals for projects that are intrinsically linked with UTRGV’s strategic plan and aligned with our Vision, Mission, Values, Core Priorities, and Other Key Areas of Focus. We have set aside $100,000 for these efforts, with a maximum award amount of $20,000 per proposal. Requests for smaller amounts are strongly encouraged so a variety of initiatives and projects can be supported. Proposals may consist of a pilot initiative or a seed money proposal for the development of larger projects leading to grant proposals to external funding agencies to move us closer to fulfilling our Vision.

Proposals will be accepted for research and creative works, as well as administrative and student-led initiatives that:

  • focus on ensuring student success;
  • further our goal of becoming a bilingual, bicultural, and biliterate university; and
  • demonstrate the use of high impact practices and effective teaching strategies.

Please see the Request for Proposals for additional details. Proposals are due via email to strategic-planning@utrgv.edu by Friday, December 2, 2019.
