During the past academic year we introduced the Strategic Investment Fund (SIF) to enable investment in faculty-led projects and initiatives that advance the objectives outlined in the Faculty’s strategic plan, Building the Future.
I am pleased to announce that to date we have invested $2.3M in 24 projects based on a competitive peer adjudicated process. To learn more about each funded project and proposal submission information, visit:
The next proposal deadline is October 15, 2018, and the spring 2019 deadline is tentatively set for February 28, 2019.
Thank you again to those who submitted proposals. I look forward to receiving new proposals in the coming year as we continue to invest in excellence and innovation across the Faculty.
