The URC was established to foster faculty research and to promote faculty development activities, including the identification of priorities and programs which shall provide opportunities for faculty growth and renewal. Each year this faculty committee, with administrative support provided by the Office of Grants and Research Services on behalf of the Provost's Office conducts an awards competition for research-expense grants and summer stipends in accord with guidelines approved by the university.
The Council reviews proposals from faculty members and recommends funding for as many proposals as possible within the limits of the monies available. Generally the Council funds approximately one half of all submitted proposals.
Some programs administered by Federal and State agencies and foundations having competitive grant programs restrict the number of applications that an institution may submit. For these cases, the University has developed an internal review process. OGRS will announce the program and its restrictions and solicit project summaries from appropriate Seton Hall faculty.
Next, the University Research Council will review these project summaries and make recommendations to OGRS concerning which should proceed to the next level of competition. Those recommended by the University Research Council will then be the official applications submitted by Seton Hall University.
