Faculty invited to discuss 1804 and Konneker Fund proposals by Feb. 15

Faculty and staff are invited to have preliminary discussions by Feb. 15 about two Ohio University funds aimed at bringing together collaborative ideas that cut across silos and can foster innovative program ideas.

"The 1804 funds can be used to support undergraduate learning, research or creative activity, and graduate education. People who wish to pursue curricular innovation or programs that enhance student curricular or co-curricular experiences are encouraged to apply," said David Nguyen, dean of University College.

"The Konneker fund is designed to provide transformative university-wide opportunities or experiences for students and faculty that can foster imaginative learning. Previously funded projects include the Center for Campus and Community Engagement," Nguyen said.

Both programs require preliminary discussions by Feb. 15. More information about both these programs is available on the University's Funding Resource web page.
