Committee on Research Survey
The Faculty Committee on Research and the Office for Faculty Research Development are interested in getting some input into how you use research committee funds and how well our programs match your research needs.
In which department or program is your primary appointment?
What is your current position at Vassar?
I am an assistant professor in the first 5 years of my career here.
I am an assistant professor, a year or two away from my tenure decision.
I am an associate professor in the first 5 years after my tenure decision.
I am an associate or full professor in the middle stages of my career.
What are your primary needs for your scholarly pursuits? (check all that apply)
Travel to/from research site
Publication costs (subventions, copy fees, copyright fees, etc)
Computing- and media-related equipment (eg. microphones, tablets, digital image acquisition, etc)
The Faculty Committee on Research hosts two calls for proposals each year, one in the fall and one in the spring. How often do you submit a proposal?
Once a year
Once every three years
Each Committee on Research award is capped at $5000. Each of the categories within the award are also capped. If the award category caps were made more flexible, how likely would it be that you request the full $5000 in a given proposal?
Very likely. I would always ask for the maximum.
Likely. I often require more funds for my scholarship than are available.
Not very likely. Most of my scholarly needs are less than $5000.
If funds were available for a small number of larger awards, for project periods longer than one year, how likely would you be to apply for such opportunities?
Not very likely. The yearly, smaller awards suit my needs.
If the Committee on Research offered one three-year award in the sciences and one in the non-sciences, how likely would you be to apply for such an award? Each award would allow up to $15,000 over a three-year period, with no renewal, for a defined project leading to a published work or extramural funding. (This larger award would be in place of the usual, small, individual award for the period of the award.)
Currently, the Committee on Research does not subject proposals to competitive peer review. How comfortable are you with a more competitive review for fewer projects with more funds?
Not at all comfortable
The Committee on Research is considering a pilot project where collaborative projects between two faculty at the College might be funded up to $30,000 over a three-year period, following competitive review. How likely are you to apply for such an award?
Not at all likely
Currently, the College does not fund travel or lodging for collaborators to come to campus to work on projects with faculty. Would such an option enhance your scholarship?
Yes, my scholarship relies on collaborators being able to stay for short periods on campus.
No, my scholarship relies on my own travel to research sites.
Some other institutions provide funding for manuscript assistance that involves bringing an expert to campus to work with small groups of faculty on their book manuscripts. Would you be interested in such an opportunity?
Yes, I would sign up for such an opportunity
No, I am not interested in this opportunity
