Professional Boundaries With Respect To Immediate Family Members UAF Policy

UAF Policy 04.10.040

The Vice Chancellor of Research (VCR) solicited proposals for potential research initiatives for FY21. The purpose of that solicitation was to gather broad input, forward the promising ideas for federal funding (federal research initiatives and to find alternate sources of funding for other promising ideas). 
The Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor, and Vice Chancellor of Administrative Services then distributed a call for FY22 Strategic Initiative proposals.  Funding for the strategic initiatives is likely to come from the SW Strategic Initiative funding or other internal reallocations as available. 
If you submitted a research initiative proposal to the VCR, you may submit the same idea to the strategic initiative using this link. Resubmission is important for consideration as we are weighing in responses to some other questions (such as alignment to strategic goals and new accreditation standards) in evaluating the submissions. 
Enrollment and all other initiatives for FY22 are also encouraged to use this process.
