Pace-Wide Research Day 2013
On Friday March 8th, we had the first meeting of the 6 member Research Day Faculty Planning Committee, whom were nominated by each School’s Faculty Council reps. It was an enthusiastic group with lots of excellent suggestions. The consensus from our discussions, and just a few other items:
Research should be current (i.e. within the last two years). Staff who conduct research and adjunct faculty should also be included.
A written program will be prepared with the abstracts of all the participants included. Due to printing considerations, The Deadline for abstracts is April 3rd. They should be sent to Mitsuko Rendon (email@example.com) and myself (firstname.lastname@example.org). Maximum of one page. In the first week after the initial announcement we have received nearly 50 abstracts, mostly from PLV faculty. (This includes my own Abstract, as I will also be presenting my current research.)
Although the presentation will most likely be in poster form, laptops and tablets are also allowable, as well as presentations including books, journal articles, or scholarly book chapters written by the participant (e.g., humanities and Law School) as long as an abstract summarizing the body of work is shown, as well as ‘creative works.’ Thus, we are flexible as to presentation.
Rich Schlesinger from “Dyson Science Day”, Maria Iacullo-Bird from “ The Society of Fellows Annual Meeting (Dyson)”, and Sue Maxam from “Undergraduate Student Faculty Research Showcase” will also recommend that the best presentations from both faculty/student research events, as well as Jim Stenerson’ s “Research Forum,” would all be encouraged to present their best posters at Research Day. And, we will all try to coordinate our research events together.
All students should be invited by their faculty and encouraged to come.
While the two sessions will take place from 10:00 to 3:00, not all faculty will be able to be at their posters due to teaching and other commitments during part of the time. This is acceptable.
As part of this event a ceremony will be held with some short remarks. We anticipate that the remarks and presentations will take place around noon, last ~45 minutes, followed by a light meal. This would include a ceremony to give out Award Certificates to the ~35 faculty (in total, but done separately at each campus) who obtained grants in the last complete FY that contained indirect costs. In addition to the certificates, they will have received 5% of their indirect to be used by them to further their research;
Awards to poster presenters was discussed and the Committee unanimously recommended that awards be given to 1 person from each School, or a total of six to be given after the second Research Day in NYC. The criteria will be content, organization and quality of presentation. The awardees will be chosen by members of the committee;
We anticipate that the Provost, and all the Deans will be present at portions of each of the two campus events.
Thus, we encourage all faculty to participate and attend Research Day, and as many students, as possible, to attend and view the exciting and cutting edge research being conducted at Pace University, as research is a critical aspect of Pace University. To date we have 33 Posters in Pleasantville and 15 Posters in NYC, a total of 48 Posters. This is an excellent opportunity to learn of the research of your colleagues, develop ideas for your research with your colleagues, and ideas for interdisciplinary research, as well as excite and recruit students to your fields.
DISPATCH NUMBER ONE
To all Pace Faculty,
On behalf of Provost Uday Sukhatme, the Office of Sponsored Research and the Faculty Research Planning Committee (one representative from each School), I am pleased to announce the First Annual Pace-Wide Research Day(s).
In the last complete fiscal year, Pace faculty submitted 141 proposals for external funding and received 97 external awards. Our Pace Research Day will celebrate and recognize the faculty research, both funded, and not funded. All faculty are encouraged to present the results of their current Research (i.e., since July 1st 2011), either research undertaken by the faculty as well as jointly with their students. I personally, along with the Provost and Deans, and most importantly, our students, look forward to seeing the wide array of research being undertaken at Pace and displayed in Pleasantville and New York City.
Research Day(s) will be held in PLV on Thurs, April 25th: 10AM-3PM in the Gottesman and Butcher Suites; and in NYC Tues, April 30th: 10AM-3PM in the Student Union and the Schimmel Lobby as well. Your research may be displayed by posters or on laptops/tablets. In each one you should include the names of all participants, the title of your research, and a few sentences of explanation. A light lunch will be served and awards will be given.
This is your opportunity to inform your colleagues from other Schools of your research, learn of theirs, and interact with your colleagues and interested students.
Please RSVP to either to Victor Goldsmith (email@example.com) or Mitsuko Rendon (firstname.lastname@example.org) of your interest.
Thus, we encourage all faculty to participate and attend Research Day, and as many students, as possible, to attend and view the exciting and cutting edge research being conducted at Pace University, as research is a critical aspect of Pace University. This is an excellent opportunity to learn of the research of your colleagues, develop ideas for your research with your colleagues, and ideas for interdisciplinary research, as well as excite and recruit students to your fields.
