Each tier acknowledges the value of faculty members who have attained various levels of research experience contributing to the college’s strategic aims of advancing collaborative research and training, and allows for the possibility of advancement through the series of available tiers.

Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis and are reviewed by standing RSAC committee members and ad-hoc intramural content experts.
