Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and Medicine (STEMM) Research
STEMM Research Advisory Board
Committee Chair: Dr. William S. Ball
Committee Members: Roster
Associate to VP for Research: Heather Geers

The STEMM Research Advisory Board (formerly known as UC Board for Sponsored Research / Pathway A) was formed in 2012 as a permanent committee to support UC Vice President for Research, Dr. Bill Ball, and the UC Office of Research. The role of the Board is as follows:
  • To represent and promote the research interests of the colleges or units within an intercollegiate forum.
  • To promote intercollegiate and multidisciplinary approach to university research.
  • To advise the Office of Research on best practices to promote intercollegiate and multidisciplinary research which will recognize the efforts of all involved.
  • To allow constructive input into the operational management of research at the university.
    To recommend to the Vice President for Research the most productive and efficient use of resources directed at research.  
In addition, President Ono asked Dr. Ball to lead an effort to re-evaluate the overall mission for research at UC in the next 5-10 years and build the necessary infrastructure to create a sustainable research environment that takes into account all research at the university and the needs of faculty to remain productive in research throughout their career at UC. Thus, one of the first charges of this group was to make recommendations to the Executive Committee and President Ono of what will be required to make this happen.
