Faculty Development Services

Workshops:  Workshops are an excellent way to educate faculty in grantsmanship.  I present one-day, two-day, or even week-long workshops that primarily teach the concepts of grantsmanship and how to use layering to achieve them.  Most other workshops focus on “what” needs to be accomplished, but few if any provide guidance for how to achieve it.  I provide the what, why, and how.  As much as possible, lectures are followed by activities that serve to give concepts more reality. 

Department and Institution Program:  This is one of my favorite programs.  Workshops provide many of the fundamentals of grantsmanship that are essential for success.  Yet, my experience indicates that many researchers need further guidance. Colleagues can help to some degree, but more often than not, they have minimal time to get into the weeds to identify issues or they simply do not have sufficient experience and expertise.  It is also important to realize that the rules for attaining an award are different for well-established and well-funded faculty than it is for newer faculty or those that have struggled with funding. 

Here, I provide one (optional two) workshops a year.  I further work with faculty (optional, but highly suggested) over the course of a year to follow up on strategies and concepts presented in the workshops.  Again, at the risk of sounding arrogant, it takes guidance from someone that has the breadth of knowledge and experience in both research and grantsmanship.  I am finding more and more that this competence is in short supply.  Others talk a good game.  I deliver.  If you truly want to catapult your faculty to success, this is the program for you. 

Cost: I never want cost of my services to be a barrier for my clients.  Contact me.  We will find a way to make it happen for you.  I admit that I am not inexpensive.  You can find less expensive consultants.  Question is, can you find one worth the expense and that will deliver a high return on your investment.
