Welcome to the Research and Engagement Academy. The Academy is designed to advance and support the scholarly careers and success of faculty members by strengthening the quality and quantity of grant proposals submitted to federal agencies and foundations and by increasing the diversity of faculty who are awarded funding. Academy scholars commit to submit a competitive grant proposal, to attend six day-long workshops and to work closely with an assigned “scholarly coach.” Scholarly coaches are senior UNH faculty with established track records of external funding and with the personal qualities and desire necessary to serve others. This faculty professional development Academy is one of several programs offered by the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Engagement and Academic Outreach to help support scholarship and engagement. Other programs include the Engaged Scholars Academy and a number of learning communities that work with faculty in the humanities, social sciences and the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
