Suggestions for next year
Space out booths
Email/print out individual invitations for special invitees
Invite others in outreach – not just seed grant winners
1st round award winners need to submit final reports – Kim O. will follow up
RFP Round 3 for seed grants
Would like deadline before spring break March 10th
Will send out RFP in January
Kim & Sarah will update RFP and send out via email for approval.
Discussion – How to identify people doing engaged scholarship
Why do we want/need to know
Need it for upcoming Carnegie application
Good to know actual numbers when asked – right now it’s a guessing game
How can we identify?
Encourage faculty to report on activity insight
Possibly ask Chris F. to add box for engagement
There are products out there that would track both student and faculty engagement, however the university has been hesitant to purchase products.
Kim will invite Chris Fastnow to February meeting to see if there are other things we could do.
January meeting is cancelled - Next meeting will be February 7th, 2016
