Vicki Lord Larson and James Larson Tenure-track Time Reassignment Collaborative Research Program

Supporting Tenure-track Faculty in Research

This program encourages tenure-track faculty to collaborate with students.

A.      Background

The goals of this program are to support tenure-track faculty as they develop and enhance their scholarship in preparation for tenure consideration, and to encourage them to do so in collaboration with students. The intention is to provide a meaningful scholarly experience for students, and to result in scholarly dissemination through professional presentations and/or peer-reviewed publication, that advances the faculty member's career.

A UW-Eau Claire tenure-track faculty member may propose a project that involves at least one student researcher.  The project may be new, or may already be in progress.  Funds are available to provide a student scholarship of up to $2000 and to support reassigned faculty instructional time for the equivalent of one 3-credit course during the academic year.  Summer or Winterim salary may be an alternative, but projects with reassigned time will receive preference.

B.      Eligibility

  • UW-Eau Claire faculty member on tenure track
  • Student researcher identified, or qualifications for student researcher established

C.      Writing Guide

Submit a proposal to ORSP@uwec.edu.  This should include:

  • Narrative (3-4 pages)

    • Timeline
    • Plan for mentoring the student researcher
    • Plan for dissemination of results

Please ask your chair to submit an email indicating support for the project and how it benefits your progress towards tenure, and to also include a plan for covering courses and expected costs.
