In Brief: Pitt Seed Project Proposals Due March 5

More than 100 faculty and staff members have submitted an optional expression of interest for the first-ever Pitt Seed Projects — a response that is, said Chancellor Patrick Gallagher, “overwhelmingly positive.”

The new initiative, funded by the Office of the Chancellor, provides an opportunity for Pitt faculty and staff to directly and actively contribute to Pitt’s strategic transformation.

Pitt Seed Project proposals can address a variety of areas of University focus that are relevant to all faculty and staff, including research ideas; academic programs; process improvement; diversity; community and industry partnership development; outreach; methods of teaching and learning, workshops and lectures; and enhancing the student experience.

Funding for selected project proposals will come from the Office of the Chancellor; applicants can request up to $50,000 in project support.

The deadline for submitting a Pitt Seed Projects application is March 5, 2018, at noon. Details about the program are available on the chancellor’s website.
