Faculty Reassignment Awards in Arts and Humanities Announced

The Division of Research, Economic Development and Engagement, in partnership with the Division of Academic Affairs, is pleased to announce its Faculty Reassignment Awards in the Arts and Humanities for the 2018-19 academic year.

This year’s Faculty Reassignment Award recipients and their projects are:

  • Edmund Wall, Philosophy, “A Natural Morality”
  • Liza Wieland, English, “DAMAGE: A Novel”
  • Nicole Caswell, English, “Inclusive Intersectional Notions of Writing Assessment”
  • Laura Levi-Altstaedter, Foreign Language and Literatures, “Building Capacity in Teacher Candidates Through Micro-credentialing”

Faculty Reassignment Awards provide funds to departments to reassign faculty to allow time for research and creative arts pursuits in the Arts and Humanities. This creates extra time for faculty to apply for extramural funding. Applicants presented a well-defined project, identified specific funding opportunities and created a plan for proposal review.
