Dec. 16, 2011: Faculty Advisory Council Updated on Research Administration Initiatives

At the December 16, 2011 meeting of the Faculty Advisory Council for Project 50 Forward, Nancy Daneau, Assistant Vice President for Research Development and Sponsored Programs, and members of the Operational Excellence Program Management Office updated the Council on the progress and plans for the creation of a Research Advisory Faculty Team (RAFT) to facilitate faculty input on administrative activities that impact the research community, and the development of a research portal to enable researchers to access all systems and resources needed to administer their grants through a single Web-based interface.

President Stanley created the Faculty Advisory Council in early 2011 to: provide critical input to the Operational Excellence Steering Committee, advise on ways to reach out to Stony Brook faculty and ensure that recommendations from the Operational Excellence component of Project 50 Forward support the needs of the academic and research community.

Stony Brook is relying on input from all sectors of the campus community to achieve the goals of Operational Excellence.

If you have suggestions to make Stony Brook more effective and efficient, please contact the Project 50 Forward team.
