All UB tenured and tenure-track faculty are eligible to submit concept papers; and there is no limit on the number of preliminary proposals that a faculty member may participate on per proposal cycle. However, faculty may serve as the leader or the co-leader on only one full proposal submission per proposal cycle. This requirement acknowledges that leadership and organization of the community proposal – designated by leader or co-leader status – will be substantial. It is understood and expected that there may be overlap of key personnel across distinct communities.
Faculty leaders or co-leaders must be UB tenured or tenure-track faculty. In addition, it is desirable to list departments that will participate in the community learning goals.
