Funding Opportunities

The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations' weekly program or funding opportunity highlight:

  • Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI)... The Research in Undergraduate Institutions (RUI) program supports research for faculty members of predominately undergraduate institutions through the funding of 1) individual and collaborative research projects, 2) the purchase of shared-use research instrumentation, and 3) Research Opportunity Awards (ROA) for work with NSF-supported investigators at other institutions. Please note that Gustavus faculty have secured ROA support to supplement their sabbatical leave salary. All NSF directorates participate in the RUI activity. The specific objectives of the program are to support high-quality faculty/student research, to strengthen the research environment in academic departments that are oriented primarily toward undergraduate instruction, and to promote the integration of research and education. The three RUI programs are described at www.nsf.gov/pubsys/ods/getpub.cfm?nsf00144. For further information on the RUI program, including deadline for the proposed research area, contact the NSF program director of the research program to which a proposal might be submitted. To locate the appropriate program officer, click on http://www.nsf.gov/staff/.

For more information on grants or proposal preparation, contact Bob Weisenfeld in the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (x7049 or bweis@gustavus.edu).

President's Cabinet Summary

At its Sept. 8 meeting, the President's Cabinet discussed the Sept. 2 President's Colloquium. The event featured updates by President Ohle on Commission Gustavus 150 and the State of the College. A presentation of the College's new branding work was enthusiastically received and is scheduled to be initially rolled out publicly on Oct. 9.

The President and Vice Presidents shared experiences and impressions from Opening Day activities on Sept. 4. New student move-in went well, as did the ice cream social for students, hosted by President and Kris Ohle at their home. President Ohle and the Vice Presidents noted the clear enthusiasm of the Class of 2013 and commented with appreciation on the excellent work done by Student Affairs staff and Gustie Greeters.

This week's Commission Gustavus 150 update covered the upcoming schedule for Trustee review of the report from its August Workshop, in which it prioritized 385 recommendations from eight task forces.

The Cabinet also discussed long-term planning for the Nobel Conference, including the importance of expanding the event's educational reach and leveraging it for greater institutional visibility.

The Cabinet approved the replacement of three budgeted custodial positions. It also decided to engage Datatel to redesign the Admission website in keeping with the rebranding of the College. The Cabinet explored the idea of a local business fair on campus this fall to support local retailers and other business owners while Highway 169 construction limits customer traffic downtown.

Another event under discussion was a Candidates Forum in early November, in which declared Minnesota gubernatorial candidates from all parties will be invited to speak and take questions from Gustavus students and community members. H1N1 discussion included a review of the communications plan for the opening of the academic year.

Lastly, the Cabinet received an update on Gustavus student Brendan Loney, who was injured this summer in a diving accident. The Loney family has appreciated the incredible support they have received from Gustavus students, coaches, and many others. The Cabinet will next meet on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
