Grant Writing Workshop

Grant writing is an integral aspect of scholarly life, but it can feel overwhelming. This workshop, led by Crystal Herron of Redwood Ink, covered the key elements of a grant proposal, what reviewers look for in a proposal, and how to get valuable feedback on your proposal (and increase your score!). Faculty, staff, and postdoctoral fellows were invited to bring a working grant or grant idea to the workshop during interactive group work exercises.

Qualtrics Workshop

In March and April of 2024, CRASE hosted a two-part interactive workshop that equipped faculty with the tools to create effective online surveys for their research needs. Qualtrics software enables users to collect and analyze data online for different purposes including market research, customer satisfaction and loyalty, product and concept testing, employee evaluations, and feedback in general - to name a few.

One Planet, Many Worlds

On Thursday, February 22, 2024, CRASE was proud to sponsor a lecture and conversation with Dr. Dipesh Chakrabarty, esteemed professor and author of One Planet, Many Worlds: The Climate Parallax. Those in attendance were able to engage in a meaningful discussion about climate change and the necessary integration of academic disciplines that will be required to meet this challenge.

Prior to the event, nearly twenty faculty members responded to Chakrabarty’s book in short essays and even with artwork. Please look out for these responses when they’re published in the Journal of Interdisciplinary Perspectives and Scholarship. The collective engagement and thoughtful participation of our USF community made the event a resounding success. For those who couldn't attend or wish to revisit the enlightening discussion, please see the event recording below.
