New Talle Faculty Research Award for associate professors

One of the four goals of the CLA Roadmap, as we pursue our vision of establishing CLA as a destination college, is a relentless pursuit of research and creative excellence. Providing support for our faculty at critical stages of their careers is one key ingredient in building a supportive environment for excellence and was one of the recommendations of the CLA Roadmap Goal Group on research and creative excellence. Thanks to help from our wonderful supporters, Ken and Janet Talle, we were able to launch the first round of the Talle Faculty Research Award this summer, with the application period closing last week. Over the next five years the fund will provide $1.5 million of research support to associate professors who are in their first four years since being tenured and promoted to that rank.
