Consultations & Proposal Support

The Public Engagement & Research Impacts team can support your grant proposals and public impact research projects.

Project Consultations & Matchmaking

The Public Engagement & Research Impacts team connects scholars from all disciplines to campus and external partners to help support their public impact ambitions. We offer 1:1 or small-team consultation on: 

  • Ideation
  • Project design and development
  • Articulating a public impact identity
  • Identifying and connecting with appropriate partners
  • Defining metrics and indicators for public impact of research 
  • Translating research effectively for public audiences

In addition, the PE+RI team can connect you with possible unit collaborators across campus, help identify internal and extramural funding opportunities for public engagement & research impacts projects, and highlight training and professional development opportunities. 

Proposal Support: Societal Impacts of Research

In partnership with the Research Development & Proposal Services team, the Public Engagement & Research Impacts team consults with faculty seeking extramural funding on articulating the potential societal impact (or “broader impacts”) of their research.
