New Faculty Institute | Research: Grant Writing and the Proposal Development Process (Main)

September 26, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

| Free

The UTSA New Faculty Institute introduces recently hired faculty to the culture of research and instructional excellence. Participants attend six (6) workshops related to teaching (3) and research (3), and a closing lunch to celebrate their first year at UTSA. The Institute is open to all first-year, full-time faculty members at the University.


  • New Tenure and Tenure-Track faculty, hired at the assistant professor level
  • Non-tenure track faculty with multi-year contracts


The key to a successful proposal is presenting quality ideas through concise writing. In this session, staff from the Office for Research and the UTSA Writing Center will share tips for writing clearly and responsive to the funders call, and will assist participants in creating an “elevator pitch” and abstract that will capture the funders attention. Participants will also learn how to apply effective project management strategies to the proposal development process.

Presenter:  Lucy Deckard is the President of Academic Research Funding Strategies, LLC, a consulting firm she founded in 2010 that provides services to help academic institutions, faculty and staff develop the expertise in-house to identify funding opportunities, understand funding agencies, and develop successful research grant proposals. Previously, Ms. Deckard served as Associate Director of the Texas A&M University’s Office of Proposal Development.
