B6: Expand support for faculty to pursue external funding for teaching and research

External awards are a prestigious and valuable acknowledgement of a faculty member’s intellectual achievements and promise. Trinity will establish a culture in which faculty members from all disciplines take the initiative to compete for funding from institutions, foundations, consortia, and governmental agencies. To this end, in the form of workshops and customized consultations, Trinity will provide guidance, information, and technical assistance to all members of our community interested in seeking external funding. Trinity will assist in identifying and cultivating sources for external funding, preparing and submitting effective proposals, and ensuring that all external grant applications are submitted in accordance with the guidelines, policies, and procedures established by both the University and the funding source.
