Faculty Research Day 2014
This April, the second annual Pace-wide Faculty Research Days return to campus to celebrate and recognize a wide variety of faculty research and scholarly activity.
Provost Uday Sukhatme, ScD, and the Office of Sponsored Research invite you to attend the second annual Pace-wide Faculty Research Days held on the New York City and Westchester campuses. This an opportunity for the Pace Community to celebrate and recognize the faculty research and scholarly activity, both funded and not funded, that is currently happening on campus.
If you are presenting at one of this year’s Research Days then this is your opportunity to share your research, explore the research of others, and interact with your colleagues and students alike. After you’ve had a chance to peruse the posters of your colleagues, be sure to stick around until 12:30 p.m. for the award ceremonies which will be hosted by Provost Sukhatme.

In the last complete fiscal year, Pace faculty submitted 151 proposals for external funding (the most ever in one year) and received 89 external awards. Those who received external funding will be recognized during the Research Days award ceremonies with a plaque, and will also receive 5% of the indirect costs in their awards to use to further their research.

Also coming up this spring are the Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research showcases on both the NYC and Westchester campuses. Not participating in this year's showcase, but want to work on scholarly or creative research in during summer 2014? If this sounds appealing to you, we urge you to apply to the Provost’s Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Summer 2014 Program. Students will work with a faculty mentor on a specific project related to their field of study. Pairs will submit their findings in blogs and summaries throughout the semester. A small stipend will be given to each student and faculty member accepted into the program, and each team will have the opportunity to present their projects at the following spring showcase in May 2015. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, April 30.
