New Faculty

We enjoyed meeting with new faculty at their orientation fair on August 14. Attendees who filled out their research interests were entered into a drawing for a UCA Bears Tailgating Package. We know many new faculty who attended the fair were not able to stop by our booth, so if you haven't filled out your research interests or would like to add to your profile, please fill out this online form by this Friday, Sept. 4. Everyone will receive a free koozie and pen and be entered into the contest. The lucky winner will be announced Thursday, Sept. 10.

Newsletter

Keep an eye out for our new newsletter on October 1, 2015.

SPIN/SMARTS Upgrade

InfoEd completed a major upgrade of the SPIN/SMARTS grants search databases over the summer. We find the new systems to be more intuitive and robust and have created a set of instructions for faculty already familiar with these databases navigate the new interface. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Jennifer Deering at jdeering@uca.edu.
