Call for proposals: Provost’s Global Forum

I am pleased to announce the following award with an April 1, 2017 deadline.

Provost’s Global Forum http://international.uiowa.edu/funding/faculty/awards/ip-funding/provost...

The Provost’s Global Forum is the premier annual event on campus focused on international and global issues. The forum brings together experts from the faculty and leading voices from a variety of areas (business, technology, education, politics, and civil society, including projects focused on the environment, human rights, development, citizen diplomacy) to raise awareness about and contribute to debate on the foremost issues in globalization that face us today. In addition to serving the University of Iowa community broadly, the forum endeavors to build connections between the University and the state of Iowa, and positions the UI as a national node in discussions of global affairs.

The organizer(s) and topic of the annual forum will be selected by the provost upon the recommendation of a committee selected by the associate provost and dean of International Programs. In announcing the competition, the provost may from time to time give priority to a specific issue in, or approach to, globalization.

Organizers will explore ways to carry the issues outward from the UI campus through publication avenues or media outlets, including articles in state and national newspapers, magazines, and television as appropriate. The forum will also include the Joel Barkan Memorial Lecture.

The forum is made possible through the generous support of the Stanley-UI Foundation Support Organization.

Deadline

April 1, 2017

Eligibility

All University of Iowa tenured, tenure-track, clinical, and research faculty are invited to submit proposals. Visitors and adjuncts are not eligible to apply.

Terms of Award

Up to $20,000 will be awarded. Organizers may choose to use the funds to bring multiple speakers to campus; or they may focus on one or two high-profile speakers. Funding is for the 2016-17 academic year. Spring and fall events will be given equal consideration. However, because of logistical concerns, spring events are preferred.

Please direct questions to ip-facultyfunding@uiowa.edu.
