Initiative 7: Faculty Research Support

Goal: Provide programmatic, administrative and financial support for all forms of faculty scholarship
Description: Design and deliver programmatic, administrative, and financial support for existing faculty research programs (e.g., Internal Grants Program, Time to Write) and for individual faculty awards (e.g., Tricouncil New Award Recognition, Lévesque Research Professorship and Chair, Canada Research Chairs (CRC), Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC))
Responsibility: Deans/Vice-President Research and Graduate Studies
Success measures: Number of faculty involved in publications of all types; number of research grants and magnitude of research expenditures; number of faculty engaged in research; number of faculty records deposited in islandscholar.ca; existing (e.g., h-index) and to-be-developed discipline specific indices of research influence and impact including reports, peer reviewed papers, presentations, networked participatory scholarship, editorials, media, and other public forms of research visibility
