WSU Visibility:
Current outreach activities to increase visibility of WSU researchers
related to both Phase I and Phase II indicators; identify gaps and
barriers.
Support system:
WSU mentoring and nomination practices for faculty of different
career stages for Academy Members, Faculty Awards, Fellowships
(Phase I indicators).
WSU support system and practices for grant applications (in
particular large grants) (Phase I Indicator) and for non-competitive
USDA, state and industrial supported research (Phase II).
Barriers for faculty members to participate in outreach and global
engagement activities that will enhance WSU Phase I and Phase II
indicators
Sub-Group Activities between Sept 23 and Oct. 14
We had three meetings, focusing on two main items: 1)Faculty Visibility, 2)
Developing Internal and External Survey Questions.
Faculty Visibility
We invited three national academy members to interact with the subgroup:
• Dr. Anjan Bose, NAE, WSU VCEA
• Dr. Guy Palmer, WSU SGAH, NAS, Institute of Medicine
• Dr. Norm Scott, WSU Alumnus, former VPR of Cornell University, NAE
Chair of Board on Agriculture and Natural Resources
of National Academy of Sciences
Main Conclusions of the Dialogs:
Helping faculty reaching to the status of national academies requires
a strong university-wide culture and support system:
1) Help recognizing achievements of faculty members at various
career stages, WSU internal awards and AAU recognized major
awards – need a culture to support and recognize faculty
excellence in research.
2) Nominate faculty members of strong research records to state
and national committees (e.g., WA State Academy of Sciences,
Advisory Boards for National Policies) and support faculty for
important professional activities (e.g., chief editors of major
reviewed journals) – need to build strong faculty portfolios.
3) Identity WSU faculty members and make annual nominations. In
general, 1 out of 10 nominated faculty members will get elected
to national academies. Cornell has a group of academy members
meeting every year to help identify and nominate outstanding
faculty members – need coordinated efforts to nominate WSU
faculty members.
Survey Questions (WSU Internal)
Research Visibility
How does your unit support faculty research visibility (e.g., information about
opportunities, funding to meet stakeholders, funders, etc.)?
What barriers prevent you from supporting faculty in research visibility?
