Research Development Grant (RDG) Proposal for State University Colleges (N.Y.) at Brockport, Geneseo, Cortland, Oswego and Roberts Wesleyan. Final Report.
Nasca, Donald F.
Five small colleges received a 3-year federal award designed to increase research participation on the part of faculty employed at these units. It was hypothesized that specific efforts in this direction would increase the number and quality of research proposals prepared by faculty members. A sequence of activities designed first to promote general awareness of research opportunities and to culminate with small grant awards in priority areas with formats similar to those now in use by the U.S. Office of Education was carried out. The following three conclusions were reached: 1) Initiation of institutional endorsement and encouragement of faculty research will increase faculty research involvement. 2) Within the framework of institutional endorsement, identification of an individual to collect and disseminate sponsored research information on a personal basis is the single most effective technique for increasing research involvement. 3) Faculty visitations to operational research sites in related fields produced the highest "subjectively identified" cause for increased research involvement.
