As new faculty arrive on campus this fall and confront – many of them for the first time – the need to find and compete for funding to support their research, there are some important ways that departments can help them get off to a strong start. We will discuss effective strategies for assisting and mentoring new faculty and things you’ll want to make sure they understand as they embark on their academic research careers.
The presenter, Lucy Deckard, is the President of Academic Research Funding Strategies, LLC, a consulting firm she founded in 2010 to help universities and faculty compete more successfully for research funding. She will be discussing how to help junior faculty accelerate their search for research funding.

Call for Presentations
The SUNY Center for Professional Development through the Teaching, Learning, Technology Cooperative (TLT CoOp) supports campus professional development efforts by offering various one-hour webinars throughout the academic year, facilitated by SUNY Professionals for SUNY Professionals.
The TLT Cooperative is a program with the goal of sharing SUNY expertise on a particular topic related to teaching, learning, and/or technology with others throughout the system, so that each campus can learn from one another without having to “reinvent the wheel,” the program, or the research on each campus. The TLT CoOp acts as a catalyst for communication throughout the System, offering a big picture view of the interests, talents, successes, and challenges, with the purpose of learning from one another.
