2011 CISAT Faculty Teaching and Research Award Recipients

The College of Integrated Science and Technology offered research grants and teaching grants for the 2010-2011 academic year. The purpose of the Faculty Research & Teaching Grants program is to stimulate and assist teaching effectiveness, advance one's scholarship agenda, and reflect academic unit, college, and university-wide goals. Proposals in any field of creative activity were submitted, and faculty members were encouraged to consider projects involving student activity and those of an interdisciplinary nature. Please join us in congratulating the faculty on their recent awards.
